United States Supreme Court
Case Name: Kansas v. Charles Glover
Case No.: 18-556
Focus: 4th Amendment Violation – Unlawful-stop Claim
This case presents the question whether a police officer violates the Fourth Amendment by initiating an investigative traffic stop after running a vehicle’s license plate and learning that the registered owner has a revoked driver’s license. We hold that when the officer lacks information negating an inference that the owner is the driver of the vehicle, the stop is reasonable.
Reversed and remanded
Dissenting: SOTOMAYOR, J., filed a dissenting opinion.
Concurring: KAGAN, J., filed a concurring opinion, in which GINSBURG, J., joined.
