Automobile Searches: New Direction or End of the Road for Constitutional Divergence?

Thursday, March 30, 2017 | 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The New Jersey Supreme Court has a tradition of diverging from the United States Supreme Court’s search and seizure jurisprudence, often granting more protection to citizens against searches under New Jersey’s Constitution than the United States Supreme Court grants under the Fourth Amendment. However, in the most recent case, State v. Witt, the New Jersey Supreme Court seems to have reversed its direction in the automobile context. This symposium explores this recent development, the future of automobile search jurisprudence, and whether Witt is an anomaly in the tradition of divergence or signals a new direction for the Court in search and seizure jurisprudence under New Jersey’s Constitution.

This program is presented in conjunction with the Rutgers Law Record, a student-run academic journal committed to publishing scholarly legal work in a paperless format.
