This week is the first in a two-part series covering the two dog sniff cases out of Florida being argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on October 31. Today, we sit down with Wilmer Hale partner Danielle Spinelli, an NACDL member and principal author of NACDL’s joint amicus briefs in both Florida v. Jardines and Florida v. Harris. Danielle talks to us about the case of Florida v. Jardines, a casein which the Florida Supreme Court below held that a narcotics detection dog sniff of a house is a search under the Fourth Amendment for which probable cause is required.
