Police Drones & the 4th Amendment, Part 8: Kyllo v. U.S.

cropped-logo-2048px.jpgWelcome back, Drone Law Nation! Today we are back with Part 8 of our series on the Constitutional issues raised when police use drones.

Today we’re talking about Kyllo v. U.S., the U.S. Supreme Court case that tells us when “new technology” may infringe on our Fourth Amendment rights. The “new tech” angle is critical here – the first court that considers police searches with a drone under the Fourth Amendment will have to read Kyllo together with Ciraolo, Dow Chemical, and Florida v. Riley to come up with its answer. This means that you should understand these cases, Drone Law Nation, as it could be your product (or client) that makes the law.

Listen in for more about what the future might be.
