2021 You(th) Decide

The Fourth Amendment generally requires police officers to get a warrant before entering a home. The Supreme Court has recognized an exception to that rule for emergencies, such as when the police are in hot pursuit of a suspect. In Lange v. California, the justices will decide whether that exception applies when police are pursuing a suspect whom they believe committed a misdemeanor.

You(th) Decide allows students to learn about this case from law students and legal scholars and then decide the case as Justices of the United States Supreme Court.
