State v. Sulaiman A. Sloane

State v. Sulaiman A. Sloane
2-11-08 (A-40-06)

During a motor vehicle stop, the passenger, like the driver, is
seized under the federal and state constitutions. Police do not
need a reasonable suspicion before they may access the NCIC
database and, because accessing the NCIC database was within the
scope of the traffic stop and did not unreasonably prolong the
stop, there was no basis to suppress the evidence found.
