US v. Rivera, No. 08-2538

By FindLaw Staff on July 06, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

District court order granting defendant's motion to suppress statements made during a traffic stop and the evidence found in his vehicle is reversed and remanded where: 1) the court erred in finding that defendant's traffic stop was unreasonably prolonged, as the officer did not unreasonably extend the seizure of defendant prior to the completion of the routine records check and reasonably kept him in the patrol car after the records check; and 2) the dog sniff at the end of the traffic stop was de minimis and did not violate the Fourth Amendment.
