US Supreme Court October Term opens today
The Supreme Court opened for business today hearing argument in Heien v. North Carolina, which presents the question of whether a police offier's mistake of law can provide individualized suspicion that the Fourth Amendment requires to justify a traffic stop. Other cases this term will look at issues of prisoners rights, civil procedure, evidence, election laws, and water apportionment - to name a few.
Transcripts and audio recordings of oral argument are made available to the public on the Friday after Conference.
