Preview of next week's exclusionary rule argument

The piece, at ScotusBlog, begins as follows:

The exclusionary rule generally suppresses evidence that police have obtained in violation of the Fourth Amendment. On Monday, March 21, in Tolentino v. New York (No. 09-11556), the Court will consider whether the exclusionary rule applies to pre-existing government documents relating to an individual’s identity, such as DMV records, that are obtained as a direct result of unlawful police conduct under the Fourth Amendment.
