Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendants' drug conspiracy convictions are affirmed where the district court correctly refused to suppress illicit drugs discovered in their car during a traffic stop because: 1) the district court's finding that a state trooper had reasonable suspicion to pull defendant over for unsafely passing another vehicle was not clearly erroneous; 2) defendant waived his right to assert certain arguments on appeal in his plea agreement; 3) the officer had reasonable suspicion of defendants' drug activity based on a) defendants' unusual nervousness; b) their improbable travel plans; c) one defendant's criminal history; and d) Las Vegas's reputation as a narcotics source city and Indianapolis's reputation as a drug distribution hub.
