Today, the Supreme Court hears arguments about (1) warrantless searches of shared dwellings and (2) the Labor-Management Relations Act:
(1) Fernandez v. California [see our preview at http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/cert/12-7822]
- Can police obtain consent from a cotenant to search a dwelling after another cotenant who objected to the search is lawfully removed?
(2) Unite Here Local 355 v. Mulhall [see our preview at http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/cert/12-99]
- Does an agreement stipulating that an employer will remain neutral and give access to employee information in exchange for a union’s support of an employer-friendly ballot initiative, constitute a “thing of value” in violation § 302 of the Labor-Management Relations Act; or, must a thing of value be monetary for purposes of § 302?
