Oral Arguments tomorrow in US Supreme Court over Warrantless blood draws

Tomorrow, Wednesday, January 9, 2013, the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a Missouri case that concerns the issue of whether police can forcibly take a blood sample from you, without a warrant or court order, based solely on the officer’s suspicion that you have been driving while intoxicated.

In the meantime, here is a link to an op-ed piece in the N.Y. Times, by Lincoln Caplan, arguing that a ruling in favor of the police “will diminish constitutional rights without increasing public safety in any meaningful way.”

Update:  here is an argument preview by Lyle Denniston for SCOTUSBLOG.
