Legal Docket, Episode 8: Reasonable Searches

Hosts Mary Reichard and Jenny Rough consider Kansas v. Glover, a case about a routine traffic stop. In 2016, a Kansas sheriff ran the plates of a truck on the road.

The nine Supreme Court justices had to decide if driver's 4th Amendment protections against unreasonable searches were violated. For the next two weeks you'll be hearing Legal Docket on The World and Everything in It on Saturdays. Episode 8 is available this week.
