Iowa High Court Nullifies Horrible U.S. Supreme Court Fourth Amendment Precedent

DES MOINES, Iowa (Aug. 16, 2018) – A recent ruling by the Iowa Supreme Court effectively nullified bad U.S. Supreme Court precedent in the state. The decision was a win for privacy and demonstrates the how state-level action can undermine overreaching federal power.
The case revolved around a police search of Bion Ingram’s car that led to drug charges. Under U.S. Supreme Court precedent, the search was considered constitutional. But instead of trying to fight the battle in federal court, Ingram’s attorneys chose to challenge the search in state court under the Iowa state constitution. Ultimately, the Iowa high court found that the search violated Article 1 Sec. 8 of the Iowa Constitution.

Great action to constrain the Federal Gooferment over-reaching.
The States created the Federal “Union”; not the other way around.
I hope that more States will stand up and protect their citizens and residents.
Nullification is the strategy and tactic that can bring us back to the “American Experiment”!
