The sky is falling. Terry stop suppression motions are dead. Oh my!
The Supreme Court's decision in Utah v. Streiff spells the end of the fourth amendment.
Oh no Mr. Bill!
Query: When's the last time a court granted a Terry Stop motion or otherwise granted a motion to suppress evidence based on an illegal stop or search or seizure?
Federal Court practitioners? Do you even get an evidentiary hearing on these motions?
Inevitable discovery anyone?
The death of the exclusionary rule...
None of you saw this coming? Really?
Scalia would have piled on.
See you in court, where motion practice is dead. You wanna win a case? Put on your trial suit.
