Hudson v. Michigan Decided

January 11, 2006

Reviewing whether the exclusionary rule applies to evidence seized following a violation of the "knock-and-announce" rule. DECIDED

The Fourth Amendment requires the police to knock and announce their presence before executing a search warrant, except in exigent circumstances. The police in this case violated that rule. The issue is whether evidence seized during the search should be suppressed under the exclusionary rule.
