US v. Wilks, 09-5166

In a Fourth Amendment dispute involving whether the good-faith exception to the exclusionary rule permits the admission of evidence obtained by a police officer who conducts a search in objectively reasonable reliance on binding appellate precedent that is later overruled, judgment of the district court granting defendant's motion to suppress is reversed where such a search is not subject to the exclusionary rule.
