(p.601) Chapter 23 American Search and Seizure, 1776–1787: The Years of Paradox
The Fourth Amendment

William J. Cuddihy

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows that between 1776 and 1787, the American law of search and seizure underwent a transformation that separated it from British law. The most obvious mark of that transformation was the written constitutional acknowledgement of a right respecting search and seizure by most of the new states.

Keywords:   American law, search warrant, unreasonable search and seizure
