Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call
On April 17, 2013, the Supreme Court decided Missouri v. McNeely. In an opinion written by Justice Sotomayor, the Court held that the natural dissipation of alcohol in the bloodstream over time does not constitute an exigency under the Fourth Amendment to sufficiently justify a non-consensual, warrantless blood test in a drunk driving case. Other members of the Court split in interesting ways. Our expert will provide an analysis of the case and provide his thoughts on the decision’s potential implications.
