Garvin v. New York

Petition for certiorari denied on October 1, 2018
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
17-1320 N.Y. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2018

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.
