When it comes to searching and seizing, this Court has been busy defining the parameters of proper police conduct! Does a cop need to get a warrant to poke a needle in a person to get his blood alcohol content, or do exigent circumstances always exist in DUI cases to prevent the destruction of evidence? What about cell phones? Can a cop look through all of the selfies you have taken upon arrest as a search incident to such arrest? You have to admit, this might make law enforcement’s job a little bit more enjoyable … not to mention successful! What about dogs? Are they required to take an oath now before testifying in court? Well, this class looks at the recent trends of the Court in dealing with the Fourth Amendment, including Missouri v. McNeely, 133 S.Ct. 1552 (2013), Riley v. California, 134 S.Ct. 2473 (2014), Maryland v King, Florida v. Harris, 133 S.Ct. 1050 (1013), Kentucky v King, 131 S.Ct. 1849, Heien v. North Carolina and United States v. Jones. So before searching and seizing, tune in to what the Nine has to say.
