The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled a search warrant is required to obtain location data from cell site tickets (thankfully not a court ruling applying to Kansas). But will this become the prevailing rule? Only time will tell. Read the summary in the Xiphos August Newsletter.
An article by FLETC on Reasonableness and Post-Riley Smartphone Searches can be found in the August issue of The Informer from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
The 10th Circuit decided two cases from Oklahoma dealing with search and seizure.
The first case involves upholding the search of a car after a traffic stop was completed and a drug dog gave a hit on the car. Illegal firearms were found. See the opinion on US vs. Moore.
The second case also involves a traffic stop and a search of a vehicle based on the smell of burnt marijuana. Again the legality of the search was upheld. See the opinion on US vs. Snyder.
