US v. McCane, No. 08-6235

In a firearm possession prosecution, denial of defendant's motion to suppress is affirmed where the police lacked probable cause to search defendant's vehicle, but the search was justified by the good-faith exception because the reach of the exclusionary rule does not extend beyond police conduct to punish the mistakes of others, be they judicial officers or employees, or even legislators.
