Police, The Fourth Amendment, Qualified Immunity

Supreme Court reverses 3rd Circuit in a “Girl Scouts And Trick-Or-Treaters” Type Case

with 2 comments

Last year I blogged the Third Circuit opinion in Carman v. Carroll.

The Supreme Court has now reversed, holding that the police incursion on the yard and patio was not clearly unConstitutional. Interestingly, the opinion fails to mention the “Girl Scouts and Trick-Or-Treaters” test. And I see that as a problem because I think it is a famous and relatively easy-to-apply test for the police officer in the field.
