CASE ENTRY

United States v. Terry

Rarely do an opinion’s opening sentences double as a Short Circuit entry. The Seventh Circuit shows everyone how it’s done: “Is it reasonable for officers to assume that a woman who answers the door in a bathrobe has authority to consent to a search of a male suspect’s residence? We hold that the answer is no.”
