Court Limits Police Access
Roberts writes his first dissent on warrants case
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that police cannot search a home when one resident invites them in but another tells them to go away, provoking an objection from the new chief justice about the possible effect on battered women. The 5-3 decision put new limits on officers who want to search for evidence of a crime without first obtaining a warrant.If one occupant tells them no, the search is unconstitutional, justices said.
Chief Justice John Roberts wrote his first dissent, predicting severe consequences for women who want police to come in but are overruled by abusive husbands.
