Brief filed: 12/07/2007

Documents

Virginia v. Moore

United States Supreme Court; Case No. 06-1082

Prior Decision

Opinion below 636 S.E.2d 395 (Va. 2006)

Argument(s)

At common law, an arrest falling outside the scope of “arrestable” offenses can never be justified and is always unreasonable; neither probable cause, nor good faith, nor even witnessing the alleged offense can make the arrest reasonable under the Fourth Amendment.
