California Supreme Court gives Fourth Amendment a whack

California drivers suspected of DUI will no longer be “secure in their homes” after the court ruled their homes could be searched without a warrant.

Ridiculous. Where’s the probable cause even to do this with a warrant? There is none.

And, to do so without a warrant requires “exigent” needs, such as “hot pursuit.” There’s none of that, either.
