Supreme Court Decision on Law Enforcement Error

The Supreme Court has ruled this week that a reasonable error of law by law enforcement does not require suppression of the evidence improperly obtained. I will have more on this when I get a chance to read the decision in full, but wanted to go ahead and note it in a post as it is an important search and seizure precedent, that was just released a couple of days ago. I don’t think the stop would still stand in Florida, as our law does not appear to be as ambiguous as the North Carolina law, but I guarantee this case will be used to try to forgive law enforcement errors.
