These provisions relate to the admissibility of the record of bail proceedings at trial, the test in the grant of bail particularly where serious offences are concerned, and access to the police docket for purposes of a bail application. Some provisions are challenged in more than one of the cases; several of the challenges rely on more than one constitutional ground and many of the provisions being challenged are interrelated. It is therefore sensible to examine the various constitutional challenges together rather than on a case-by-case approach.
All of the acts were alleged to have been done without probable cause. Petitioner's suit to recover damages from the agents was dismissed by the District Court on the alternative grounds 1 that it failed to state a federal cause of action and 2 that respondents were immune from suit by virtue of their official position.
The Court of Appeals affirmed on the first ground alone. Petitioner's complaint states a federal cause of action under the Fourth Amendment for which damages are recoverable upon proof of injuries resulting from the federal agents' violation of that Amendment.
The Court does not reach the immunity question, which was not passed on by the Court of Appeals.
The Fourth Amendment provides that "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.
Today we hold that it does. This case has its origin in an arrest and search carried out on the morning of November 26, Petitioner's complaint alleged that, on that day, respondents, agents of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics acting under claim of federal authority, entered his apartment and arrested him for alleged narcotics violations.
The agents manacled petitioner in front of his wife Arraignment court observation children, and threatened to arrest the entire family. They searched the apartment from stem to stern.
Arraignment court observation, petitioner was taken to the federal courthouse in Brooklyn, where he was interrogated, booked, and subjected to a visual strip search.
On July 7,petitioner brought suit in Federal District Court. In addition to the allegations above, his complaint asserted that the arrest and search were effected without a warrant, and that unreasonable force was employed in making the arrest; fairly read, it alleges as well that the arrest was made without probable cause.
The District Court, on respondents' motion, dismissed the complaint on the ground, inter alia, that it failed to state a cause of action. The Court of Appeals, one judge concurring specially, [ Footnote 3 ] affirmed on that basis.
Respondents do not argue that petitioner should be entirely without remedy for an unconstitutional invasion of his rights by federal agents. In respondents' view, however, the rights that petitioner asserts -- primarily rights of privacy -- are creations of state, and not of federal, law.
Accordingly, they argue, petitioner may obtain money damages to redress invasion of these rights only by an action in tort, under state law, in the state courts. In this scheme, the Fourth Amendment would serve merely to limit the extent to which the agents could defend Page U.
Candidly admitting that it is the policy of the Department of Justice to remove all such suits from the state to the federal courts for decision, [ Footnote 4 ] respondents nevertheless urge that we uphold dismissal of petitioner's complaint in federal court and remit him to filing an action in the state courts in order that the case may properly be removed to the federal court for decision on the basis of state law.
We think that respondents' thesis rests upon an unduly restrictive view of the Fourth Amendment's protection against unreasonable searches and seizures by federal agents, a view that has consistently been rejected by this Court. Respondents seek to treat the relationship between a citizen and a federal agent unconstitutionally exercising his authority as no different from the relationship Page U.
In so doing, they ignore the fact that power, once granted, does not disappear like a magic gift when it is wrongfully used.
An agent acting -- albeit unconstitutionally -- in the name of the United States possesses a far greater capacity for harm than an individual trespasser exercising no authority other than his own.
United States, U. Accordingly, as our cases make clear, the Fourth Amendment operates as a limitation upon the exercise of federal power regardless of whether the State in whose jurisdiction that power is exercised would prohibit or penalize the identical act if engaged in by a private citizen.
It guarantees to citizens of the United States the absolute right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures carried out by virtue of federal authority.Krizea Marie K. Duron Criminal Procedure JD II COURT OBSERVATION ARRAIGNMENT PP.
