Rachel Cheeseman reports:

The Oregon State Supreme Court ruled that a warrantless search by police officers of two bags left in a hotel room did not violate the privacy rights of Sheena Brown under the Oregon or the United States Constitutions.

Deputy public defender, Dave Ferry, defended Brown in the case arguing that the evidence obtained in the warrantless search of her bags should be suppressed. The Washington County Circuit Court and Court of Appeals ruled for suppression of the evidence, but the decision was reversed by the Supreme Court on May 27.
