Unique insights and invaluable information from the late Hon. George Brunn bring clarity to this increasingly complicated area of the law. Published in conjunction with the California Center for Judicial Education and Research.
“Fourth Amendment law and procedure has continued to receive the active attention of the courts and the state legislature in the 12 years since I wrote the first edition. Paradoxically, as the exclusionary rule has shrunk, the law has become more complicated. I have extensively reworked the book to discuss new developments and to make it more useful. Some topics, such as e-mail search warrant applications, are covered here for the first time. Discussion of other subjects, such as good faith, have been reorganized and expanded.” Hon. George Brunn
