The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a California attorney’s civil rights suit that claimed police violated his Fourteenth Amendment right to practice law. Seems the cops served him with a search warrant while he was waiting outside the grand jury room for a client to finish testifying. The case – and the object of the police search — involved Santa Monica attorney Neil Gabbert and arose from his representing a defense witness in the first murder trial of Lyle and Erik Menendez. The ruling also reflects ongoing high court disagreements with the Ninth Circuit — it’s already the eighth time this year that the justices have overruled an opinion from that circuit.
