Nevada cops sued over forced occupation of private homes
« on: July 05, 2013, 05:03:26 PM »
It’s been a few hundred years since the Third Amendment was written to keep King George from quartering British troops in American homes, but a lawsuit just filed in Nevada suggests it’s as relevant as ever.
The framers of the Constitution ratified the Third Amendment to
ensure citizens would never again have to accommodate soldiers,
but a few centuries later it’s become more-or-less an antiquated
law that’s rarely referenced in federal court. That changed
recently when a family from Henderson, Nevada accused the local
police department of constitutional violations after officers of
the law allegedly took residence in two neighborhood homes.
