US v. Rumley, No. 08-5269

By FindLaw Staff on December 08, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a prosecution for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, district court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress a firearm seized from his vehicle during a traffic stop is affirmed as the district court did not commit plain error, or any error at all, in refusing to suppress the firearm as the police lawfully seized defendant's pistol when it came into plain view before any search of defendant's vehicle, and as such, Gant does not apply to the present facts.
