Yet, our dissenting colleague would do precisely what the United
States Supreme Court dictated should not be done, that is, invalidate the warrant by
interpreting the affidavit in a “hypertechnical” manner...
We suggest a little experiment for Judges Cortinas and Lagoa: try taking your paycheck to the bank when it is not signed and see what they do with it. Then let us know if a signature requirement is "hypertechnical". Or, maybe we'll just file sworn motions to dismiss that are not signed and argue that the court should consider the merits because a signature is a"hypertechnical" requirement.
How about those "failure to sign a citation" crimes? Are those just hypertechnical as well?
So now warrants don't have to be signed in Florida. Next they won't need them at all, because really, if the police have probable cause, isn't the whole warrant mishagosh just "hypertechnical" mumbo-jumbo?
