Question description

Introduction

United States v. Ross (1982) is one of the top five cases in vehicle stops, searches, and inventories. In this case, the Supreme Court was tasked with determining whether a legal warrantless search of an automobile allowed police to also search closed containers, specifically within the trunk of that vehicle. The Court ruled that the warrantless search of the containers found during the search of the care was constitutional and fell within the existing precedent of warrantless searches called the "automobile exception."
