Missouri v. Douglass

Petition for certiorari denied on March 18, 2019
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
18-285 Mo. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2018

Issues: (1) Whether severance is the default remedy when part of a warrant is valid, or whether the Fourth Amendment requires that the valid sections make up “the greater part of the warrant”; (2) whether the particularity clause—which requires a warrant to describe “the place to be search[ed]” and “the things to be seized” with sufficient particularity— also requires a warrant to state its probable-cause findings with particularity; and (3) whether the exclusionary rule applies when the issuing judge signs off on the officer’s legal mistake in filling out a warrant form.
