Gibbs v. State (Unpublished Memo): Silence and “no objection” are different things.
Gibbs filed a motion to suppress some drug-related evidence prior to trial. Having obtained a ruling on the motion to suppress, error was preserved — there was no need to object to the evidence again at trial.
At trial, the State offered a slate of exhibits, including the evidence addressed by the motion to suppress.
Counsel for Gibbs said: “No objection.”
And with that, counsel waived the issue. All of the work on the motion to suppress was for nothing.
