Search And Seizure Update

Once more we have updated our outline entitled Developments In Federal Search And Seizure Law, which is available here. This document provides a general starting point for suppression motions with an emphasis on counterpoints: cases that favor an expansive view of Fourth Amendment protections. We recommend that defenders using this resource save it as a favorite, then access specific information either through the table of contents or by searching the document (using the find function on the pdf) for case titles or key words. The updated outline has added recent cases on areas including curtilage, probable cause, exclusionary rule, and electronic searches. If you have a favorite case you think should be included, please feel free to pass it along for inclusion in the next update.

Steve Sady, Chief Deputy Federal Public Defender, Portland, Oregon
