Name: People v. Hoffman
Case #: G026965
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 4 DCA
Division: 3
Citation: 88 Cal.App.4th 1

A defendant waives his right to appeal a suppression motion if he fails to renew the motion before the trial judge. Court unification did not affect the mandate of People v. Lilienthal (1978) 22 Cal. 3d 891, which requires that a defendant must seek review of the magistrate’s suppression ruling in superior court to preserve the issue for appeal.
