The U.S. Supreme Court today granted cert. in Herring v. U.S. The question presented in the cert. petition is as follows:
Whether the Fourth Amendment requires evidence found during a search incident to an arrest to be suppressed when the arresting officer conducted the arrest and search in sole reliance upon facially credible but erroneous information negligently provided by another law enforcement agent.
