Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:

17-870

Issues: (1) Whether the proof required to satisfy Brigham City v. Stuart, which held that the emergency-aid exception to the warrant requirement allows warrantless home searches when the police have an “objectively reasonable basis for believing that an occupant is seriously injured or imminently threatened with such injury,” is equivalent to probable cause—albeit directed at an emergency, instead of criminality—or something less; and (2) whether the police officers’ sweep in this case violated Brigham City v. Stuart’s objectively-reasonable-basis standard.
