Searches and Seizures: Airports

Excerpts from judicial opinions that discuss standards and policy for searches and seizures at nation's airports.

Court Opinions on the Topic:

Florida v. Rodriguez (1984)


United States v. Sokolow (1989)
The Honorable Justice MARSHALL, with whom JUSTICE BRENNAN joins, dissenting:
...[N]othing about the characteristics shown by airport traveler Sokolow reasonably suggests that criminal activity is afoot. The majority's hasty conclusion to the contrary serves only to indicate its willingness, when drug crimes or antidrug policies are at issue, to give short shrift to constitutional rights.
