Justice SotomayorJune 22, 2016 – Segment 2

We turn to the U.S. Supreme Court, as we examine the decision that was handed down on Monday in Utah v. Strieff, in which SCOTUS ruled that evidence found by police officers after illegal stops may be used in court if the officers conducted their searches after learning that the defendants had outstanding arrest warrants. With: Adam Liptak, Supreme Court reporter for The New York Times; and Doug Colbert, Professor of Law at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law.
