Search-and-Seizure Sentence of the Day:
From Judge Gregory of the Fourth Circuit, after rejecting a defendant's claim that he had proved a reasonable expectation of privacy in an open field at least in part by being comfortable enough to urinate there:
[I]f Fourth Amendment protection were to be predicated upon where one felt comfortable enough to eliminate, our search and seizure jurisprudence would be turned on its head.
United States v. Vankesteren, n.1.
