    Exclamation Exigent circumstances

    The Supreme Court has never expressly articulated what the standard is for when “exigent circumstances” justify a warrantless search or seizure.

    Court has now granted cert in a case that may lead the Court to finally clarify the law here:

    Should be an interesting case to follow.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    It will be interesting to see what SCOTUS does with this.
    It's the Land of Opportunity, not the Land of Entitlements - Vote America!!!

    You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.

    Interesting indeed. While I'm usually all for getting another criminal off the streets, this one seems iffy.
