Fascinating opinions handed down in today’s Florida v. Jardines. Justice Scalia’s majority opinion (joined by Justices Thomas, Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Kagan) and Justice Kagan’s concurring opinion (joined by Justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor) should provide a bulwark against wanton Jardines-style privacy invasions of the home and add to the (re-[?])emerging physical intrusion doctrine of United States v. Jones (2012).
It continues to be disturbing that the Justices seem blindly accepting of unsupported assertions about trained drug-dogs.
More thoughts later.
