Bloomberg Law: Seattle Trash Search Unconstitutional

Download the mp3 directly from Bloomberg Law

Elizabeth Joh, a professor at the U-C Davis school of Law, and Don Aplin, a managing editor from Bloomberg BNA, discuss the constitutionality of increasing government surveillance across the United States. They also discuss a recent case in Seattle, where a judge ruled the city’s trash-check ordinance unconstitutional, which allowed trash collectors to check trash bags to make sure people were not sending compostable trash to landfills. They speak with Bloomberg Law host June Grasso on Bloomberg Radio’s "Bloomberg Law."
