SCOTUS 4A Action Today

| 1 Comment
A quick note on today's US Supreme Court action.  The Court decided a Fourth Amendment qualified immunity case, Reichle v. Howards, in favor of the Secret Service agents.  It also took up a Fourth Amendment exclusionary rule case on detention incident to a search warrant, Bailey v. United States.

It's interesting to compare and contrast the miserly protection given to taxpayers in today's Armour decision with the expansive reading of the Sixth Amendment in the plea bargaining cases.

Not surprising that some Members of the Court will stretch the Constitution to help criminals but will allow the rights of taxpayers to be thwarted by the expedient of spending the money.
