Again, why are we allowing this when the US Supreme Court has already ruled it ok??? I don't understand all the crap that is allowed when presumably the highest authority has spoken. This is the same marijuana and sanctuary city issues (state vs fed or city vs fed). Isn't the federal government the final say, the ultimate bad parent????
At issue is whether a city must show probable cause of a housing violation to get an administrative warrant to enter a property. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1967 that it wasn’t necessary, but Sanders argues that the Minnesota Constitution imposes a higher standard.
Golden Valley’s attorneys say a ruling requiring that additional probable cause would make Minnesota a national outlier and undermine cities’ ability to enforce property maintenance rules.
“No other state has done what the appellants in this case are asking Minnesota to do,” said Ashleigh Leitch, an attorney for the city.
