41. Mapp v. Ohio (1961): The Supreme Court ruling that decided that the fourth amendment’s protection against unreasonable searches and seizures must be extended to the states. If there is no probable cause or search warrant issued legally, the evidence found unconstitutionally will be inadmissible in the courtroom and not even considered when pressing charges. The exclusionary rule, in this case, is a right that will restrict the states and not just the federal government, including the states in more of the federal rights as outlined in the Constitution.

Back in 1975, there was a major case called, Payton V. New York. Theodore Payton was suspected of murdering a gas station manager, they found evidence within his home that connected him with the crime. What caused the problem was the fact New York had a law that allowed unwarranted searches if the person was a suspect. Based off the oral argument presented by Oyez, the police said it didn't count as the evidence because it was in public view when entering the home. It had to be appealed before it was determined as unconstitutional.
The purpose of the dissent serves in furthering justice is to inform opinions to justify whether each case is constitutional or unconstitutional. For example, in the court case of Mapp v. Ohio, the dissenting opinion of the case is when the Supreme Court justice believes that pictures will be used against Mapp; however, the law enforcement did not refer back to the Constitution. There are cases today where police enforcement violates private affairs and searched without consent.

Kyra Rubin Professor Jennifer Larson English 105i 5 October 2015 Unit 2, Feeder 1 In the 2013 case of Miller v. Alabama, the Supreme Court held that a mandatory minimum sentence of life-without-parole is an unconstitutionally disproportionate punishment for a juvenile. Under the Eighth Amendment protections from cruel and unusual punishment, the Court held that mitigating factors must be considered in determining sentencing for juveniles. The issue in Montgomery v. Louisiana is concerned with whether or not this rule can be applied retroactively; doing so would potentially provide relief for the inmates who are currently serving time after being sentenced to live-without-parole as juveniles, and who didn’t have such mitigating factors considered. Issue: Does the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Miller v. Alabama, which held that the Eighth Amendment prohibits mandatory sentencing schemes that require children convicted of homicide to be sentenced to life in prison without parole, apply retroactively?
