Hiibel v. Sixth Judicial District Court of the State of Nevada
What's at Stake
Reviewing right of police to arrest people who refuse to identify themselves. DECIDED
The issue in the case is whether the police can arrest someone they have lawfully stopped for questioning on the street merely because that person refuses to identify himself. The ACLU brief argues that the refusal to identify oneself to the police does not, by itself, establish probable cause to arrest.
