On September 24, 2014, the Supreme Court of Ohio heard oral argument in the case of State of Ohio v. Sudinia Johnson, 2013-1973. At issue was “whether, in the absence of binding appellate precedent, the Davis good faith exception to the exclusionary rule can apply to prevent the suppression of evidence when the officer who committed the Fourth Amendment violation reasonably believed the search was legal.” (from LegallySpeakingOhio)
Blog editor Cameron Downer wrote about Davis for the UC Law Review Blog here. Cameron has since covered the Johnson case for LegallySpeakingOhio, both previewing oral argument and assessing its aftermath. Both articles are worth a read in an important follow up to the Davis case.
