Petitions of the week
on Jul 3, 2019 at 2:29 pm
This week we highlight petitions pending before the Supreme Court that address, among other things, the viability of Hill v. Colorado in light of the Supreme Court’s intervening decisions in Reed v. Town of Gilbert and McCullen v. Coakley; and the application of the Fourth Amendment to knock-and-talk encounters.
The petitions of the week are:
Issues: (1) Whether the Fourth Amendment applies to knock-and-talk encounters; and (2) whether, if it does, the Michigan Supreme Court correctly held that a predawn visit constitutes a constitutional trespass in violation of the implied license to approach.
