@SCOTUSblog Here is a link to the #SCOTUS opinion in Collins v. Virginia: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/17pdf/16-1027_7lio.pdf … 10:11 AM - 29 May 2018 https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/29/poli...arch-automobiles-without-a-warrant/index.html Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote the 8-1 opinion, sending the case back down to a lower court to determine whether there may have been other justifications for the warrant-less search. "This case presents the question whether the automobile exception to the Fourth Amendment permits a police officer, uninvited without a warrant, to enter the curtilage of a home in order to search a vehicle parked therein," she wrote. "It does not," she wrote. "Sotomayor noted that in the past the court has held that a search of an automobile can be conducted without a warrant under certain circumstances. But she said that the so called "automobile exception" does not apply when the vehicle is so near to a home."
