US v. Chaney, No. 08-2089

By FindLaw Staff on October 15, 2009 5:01 PM

District court's grant of defendant's motion to suppress majority of the evidence on grounds of Fourth Amendment violation is reversed as the officer's original request for defendant's identification and the first few follow-up questions did not unreasonably extend the duration of the stop and were justified based on officer safety concerns.
