Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:


Issues: (1) Whether a police officer who remains outside a suspect’s home violates the Fourth Amendment by arresting the suspect by show of authority without a warrant when the suspect is at the front door but has not stepped outside; and (2) whether New York’s persistent felony offender statute, which requires judicial fact-finding on the question whether an enhanced sentence will “best serve the public interest,” violates the Sixth Amendment’s jury-trial guarantee.

Recommended Citation: Aurora Barnes, Petition of the day, SCOTUSblog (May. 14, 2018, 10:00 PM),
