U.S. Supreme Court Rules on Right to Freedom from Unreasonable Searches and Seizures
In one of the best Supreme Court decisions (written by Scalia) on “privacy” in recent years, the Court ruled in 2001 that “Where . . . the government uses a [‘sense-enhancing technology’] device that is not in general public use, to explore details of the home that would previously have been unknowable without physical intrusion, the surveillance is a ‘search’ and is presumptively unreasonable without a warrant.” Kyllo v. U.S., 533 U.S. 27 (2001).
D&S comment: Durk helped the lead attorney for Kyllo to prepare the arguments in this case.
