Second hearing on Detroit drug-search case shows deep divisions on Supreme Court

New York Times
The Supreme Court has scheduled a second hearing in the case of a search for illegal drugs conducted by the Detroit Police in a private residence. The case was appealed in Michigan on the grounds that the police obtained the evidence with a warrant, but failed to “knock and announce.” Exchanges between presiding justices and David A. Moran, the defendant’s lawyer and associate dean of Wayne State’s Law School, are included in the story.
