Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In US v. Stearn, No. 08-3230, the court faced a challenge to the district court's order granting in part motions to suppress evidence following a grand jury's indictment of defendants for federal narcotic and weapons offenses.
In reversing the district court's judgment in its entirety, the court held that the magistrate judge had a substantial basis for determining that probable cause existed to search a home that was apparently the residence of a confirmed drug dealer.
Although closer probable cause questions were presented by searches of other residences, each search was upheld under the Leon good faith exception.
Finally, suppression of a defendant's saliva sample as "fruits of the poisonous tree" is reversed as he failed to prove a primary invasion of his own Fourth Amendment rights.
