High court to convene in Champlin

The Minnesota Supreme Court will visit Champlin Park High School on Monday, May 12, and hear argument on whether the exclusionary rule applies to civil forfeiture cases.  Should be interseting — the basis for the stop apparently was that the driver had both hands on the wheel and was looking straight ahead.  But the basis for a stop is irrelevant in a civil forfeiture proceeding, the Court of Appeals ruled. The case is Garcia-Mendoza v. 2003 Chevy Tahoe.

The justices will answer students’ questions after the argument and speak to students in the afternoon.
