Running Time: 00:26:32

Erik JaffeOn January 9, 2013, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Missouri v. McNeely.  The question in this case is whether the Fourth Amendment’s “exigent circumstances” doctrine permits a law enforcement officer to take a warrantless, non-consensual blood sample from a drunk driver because of natural dissipation of alcohol in the bloodstream over time.

To discuss the case we have Erik Jaffe, a Washington, D.C. attorney who specializes in appellate litigation.
