Nothing of significance on the order list today.
Collins v Virginia by Sotomayor, with a Thomas concurrence and an Alito dissent.
Held: The automobile exception does not permit the warrantless entry
of a home or its curtilage in order to search a vehicle therein.
This was a fourth amendment case, officers may not enter private property to search a vehicle without a warrant.
Lagos v United States by Breyer for a unanimous court.
This appears to limit the scope of the Mandatory Victims Restitution Act to government hearings and proceedings.
City of Hays, Kansas v Vogt has been dismissed as improvidently granted. No explanation given.
Pretty light day today, given the number of cases still pending.
