“If the First Amendment is our most cherished right under the constitution,” says Attorney Christopher Naughton on the television progam’s preview, “then the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure is right behind it.”

Are we witnessing diminishing protection against unreasonable search and seizure? When it comes to police misconduct, is race a factor?

“If the First Amendment is our most cherished right under the constitution,” says Attorney Christopher Naughton on the television program’s preview, “then the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure is right behind it.”

Live Monday night October 6, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. on the Philadelphia CNN-News affiliate WFMZ-TV and streaming online at wfmz.com, The American Law Journal presents "Search & Seizure: A ‘New’ Fourth Amendment for a New Generation?” with host Christopher Naughton. His guests are criminal defense attorney Kevin Mincey of Mincey & Fitzpatrick, Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli and former New Jersey State Police Major and Chief of Staff Michael Schaller of New Jersey’s King, Kitrick, Jackson & McWeeney.

Has a new, high tech-oriented generation come to expect less privacy - and therefore less protection- under the Fourth Amendment?

The program examines a panoply of current, critical topics: warrantless stops, cell phone seizure, GPS tracking, stop and frisk, “officer cams” and possible racially motivated police misconduct. The panel also gives their take on the latest and upcoming U.S. Supreme Court Fourth Amendment cases as well as the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s controversial Commonwealth v. Gary (2014) decision that now allows vehicular search and seizure based on probable cause.
