Supreme Court limits law enforcement use of drug-sniffing dogs
The Supreme Court limited the ability of police to use a trained dog to sniff around the outside of a home for illegal drugs that might be inside. By a 5-4 vote, the court said the use by law enforcement authorities of trained police dogs to investigate a home and its immediate surroundings was a "search" within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and required a warrant.
