Supreme Court to Decide Privacy Case on Hotel Records

    The Supreme Court on Monday said it will decide whether police in Los Angeles can inspect hotel and motel guest records without the owners’ consent or a search warrant, according to a New York Times article. In December, a federal appeals court in San Francisco struck down the Los Angeles ordinance, saying it violated the Fourth Amendment’s ban on unreasonable searches. Judge Paul J. Watford, writing for the majority, said hotel guests had given up their right to privacy when they provided information to the hotels, but the hotel owners were protected by the Fourth Amendment.
