If Scott Fitz Randolph, in his career as a lawyer, ever dreamed of having a case before the U.S. Supreme Court, he could not have envisioned a day like Tuesday.
Randolph didn't argue before the justices. Instead, the justices argued about Randolph, a disbarred Georgia lawyer, and his rights under the Fourth Amendment.
The case, Georgia v. Randolph, No. 04-1067, asked what should happen when a police officer knocks on the door of a home and asks to search, and the wife says "yes" but the husband says "no."
