Apr 25, 2007 One’s home as one’s castle, Part II

The Bill of Rights. (From the public domain.)

This follows up on yesterday’s blog entry about warrantless searches. While writing yesterday’s blog entry, I saw that, in his dissenting opinion in Hudson , Justice Breyer last year compiled a list of "decisions from 1914 to present requiring suppression of evidence seized (or remanding for lower court to make suppression determination) in a private home following an illegal arrest or search." Hudson v. Michigan, ___ U.S. ___, 126 S. Ct. 2159, 2185 (2006). Here is the list:
