Collins v. Virginia
Brief for the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers as Amicus Curiae in Support of Petitioner.
Argument: The police’s warrantless intrusion into a home or its curtilage is presumptively unconstitutional. A showing of exigent circumstances is required to justify a warrantless intrusion on a person’s home or its curtilage. An automobile’s inherence mobility, in and of itself, is not a per se exigent circumstance justifying a warrantless intrusion on the home or its curtilage.
