I’d predict the Supreme Court is going to side with the Missouri State Supreme Court and uphold the exclusion of the evidence. This kind of search of someone’s body without a warrant is going to rub the current court the wrong way. We could be looking at something like 7-2 in favor of upholding.

I hope so. There have been enoigh exceptions carvednoit of the 4th amendment to render it almost meaningless.

PIYF, but that is a valid point.

And then there is Proposition 69, passed here in California in 2004 and implemented in 2009. Unlawfully arrested? Write a bad check? Forced swab of dna sampling or face further charges.

If the supreme court goes with a sweeping decision against mandatory blood draws, it could also take out CA proposition 69. That would be a welcome development, since prop 69 requires DNA samples from anyone arrested or charged with certain crimes (i.e., no convictions needed).
