Collins v. Virginia
United States Supreme Court; Case No. 16-1027
Decision below 292 Va. 486 (Sept. 15, 2016)
The police’s warrantless intrusion into a home or its curtilage is presumptively unconstitutional. A showing of exigent circumstances is required to justify a warrantless intrusion on a person’s home or its curtilage. An automobile’s inherence mobility, in and of itself, is not a per se exigent circumstance justifying a warrantless intrusion on the home or its curtilage.
