CASE ENTRY

United States v. Maxi

Police may approach private homes without a warrant to attempt to engage residents in casual conversation. Eleventh Circuit: Ten Miami officers, who approached a home under cover of darkness, assumed “tactical positions,” and then broke down the door, were not engaged in a casual “knock and talk.” But no need to suppress the evidence.
