Professor Pamela S. Karlan is quoted in the American Constitutional Society Blog that discusses the recent Supreme Court decision in Herring v. United States affecting improperly obtained evidence:

Pamela S. Karlan, a Stanford law professor and faculty adviser for the law school’s ACS student chapter, told the Times that while the exclusionary rule may be safe for the time being, noting that five votes are not now available to ditch the rule, “you are not going to see any dimension along which there is going to be an expansion of defendants’ rights in this court.”
