No Tell Motel

Moving on to another U.S. Supreme Court case, this one was heard today and it involves a Los Angeles law that allows police to look at hotel registries without a warrant. It’s called the City of Los Angeles v. Patel, and it revolves around a law that has been on the books since 1899. A lower court found it unconstitutional, even though many other cities have similar laws. So what’s likely to happen, and what would the ramifications be?
