U.S. v. Loucious (9th Cir. - Feb. 7, 2017)

Here's another example of that "liberal" Ninth Circuit.

The district court suppresses a defendant's statements because it holds that the police didn't properly advise the defendant of his Miranda rights.

The Ninth Circuit reverses.  The warnings were close enough.

And this ain't some hard-core conservative-stacked panel, either.  The panel consists of Judges Gould, Clifton and Watford.
