Case: McBride v. United States
A writ of certiorari is granted on the following two questions:
- Whether the “good faith exception” to the exclusionary rule applies to evidence obtained pursuant to a search warrant, when the evidence supporting the issuance of the warrant was itself obtained during a warrantless search that violated the Fourth Amendment.
- Whether, under 18 U.S.C. § 3583(d)—which provides that supervised release conditions can “involve no greater deprivation of liberty than is reasonably necessary” to achieve the sentencing goals of deterrence, protecting the public, and rehabilitation—a district court may issue a special condition of supervised release barring an offender from all use of computers and the Internet.
