  • District of Columbia Et Al. v. Heller 2008  District of Columbia law bans handgun possession by making it a crime to carry an unregistered firearm and prohibiting the registration of handguns. Heller conceded at oral argument that the D.

  • Weeks v. United States, 1914 Police officers in Kansas City, Missouri went to the house of Mr. Fremont Weeks and used his hidden key to enter and search his home.  While there, they took papers, letters, books, and other items.  They did not have a search warrant.  These items were used in court to find Mr. Weeks guilty of sending lottery tickets through the U.S. mail. The judgment of the district court was reversed.  The evidence collected during the illegal search was in violation of the 4th Amendment and was thus inadmissible at the trial.  In a criminal investigation, in order for a search to be legal, there must be probable cause.  The probable cause must be used to gain a search warrant.
