Police Drones Part 9: State v. Davis

Police Drones Part 9: State v. Davis

Welcome back, Drone Law Nation! Today we are back with Part 9 of our series on the Constitutional issues raised when police use drones.   Today we’re talking about State v. Davis, a case from the Supreme Court of New Mexico addressing aerial surveillance under the Fourth Amendment and state law. This case gets into the “nitty gritty” of how to examine helicopter surveillance under federal precedent, and how to “distinguish” your case from precedent that you want to “get away” from. This case came from helicopter surveillance that led to a marijuana seizure – just like Riley. But the New Mexico Supreme Court went a different direction. And it mentioned how it might address drones in a different case.   Listen in for more about what the future might be.   Links for you: Police Drones Part 1 Police Drones Part 2 Police Drones Part 3 Police Drones Part 4 Police Drones Part 5 Police Drones Part 6 Police Drones Part 7 Police Drones Part 8 State v.
