State of Washington v. Jorden

This court case is active

The Washington Supreme Court has ruled that people do not give up their right to privacy when they check into a hotel, overturning the conviction of a man who was arrested following a police sweep of motel guest registries in Lakewood. The Court's opinion agreed with a friend-of-the-court brief filed by the ACLU, which argued that searching hotel registries without suspicion of a crime violates the privacy guarantees of the Washington Constitution.
