United States of America v. James R. Watley, Appellant, 971 F.2d 767 (D.C. Cir. 1992)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 971 F.2d 767 (D.C. Cir. 1992) July 27, 1992

Before MIKVA, Chief Judge, and HARRY T. EDWARDS and RUTH BADER GINSBURG, Circuit Judges.



This appeal was considered on the record from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia and on the briefs filed by the parties. The court has determined that the issues presented occasion no need for an opinion. See D.C. Cir. Rule 14(c). It is

ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that appellant's conviction be affirmed. The district court correctly concluded that the police officers' good-faith reliance on the search warrant issued May 18, 1990, was objectively reasonable, and thus properly denied appellant's motion to suppress. See United States v. Leon, 468 U.S. 897, 922-25 (1984); United States v. Richardson, 861 F.2d 291, 294 (D.C. Cir. 1988) (per curiam), cert. denied, 489 U.S. 1058 (1989).

The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. Rule 15.
