Dahda v. United States

United States Supreme Court; Case No. 17-43

Prior Decision

Decision below 853 F.3d 1101 (10th Cir. Apr. 4, 2017).

Argument

Title III, including its territorial limitation, was expressly designed to limit intrusion and protect privacy. Title III's territorial limitation is an important component of the statute's restrictive framework. Congress imposed the "automatic" remedy of suppression to enforce the statute as a whole.
