Commonwealth v. Skipper

Pennsylvania Superior Court

June 9, 2022

The Pennsylvania Superior Court affirmed the Court of Common Pleas order that granted the defendant’s motion to suppress evidence seized as the result of a traffic stop. The defendant was the passenger in a vehicle, and the contraband he sought to suppress was located in the glove compartment. The Commonwealth appealed, claiming that the defendant had no reasonable expectation of privacy in the vehicle. The Superior Court found that argument was waived because the Commonwealth conceded the claim before the trial court, and “a challenge to a defendant’s expectation of privacy is woven into the complex burden shifting involved in suppression hearings.”
