WSJ.com – High Court Says No to Wiretapping, Yes to Exclusionary Rule:

Yesterday, the Supreme Court granted cert in a case that, commentators say, gives them an opporunity to carve out more exceptions to the “exclusionary rule,” a criminal procedure doctrine that excludes evidence obtained from an unlawful search. At the same time, the Court, without comment, turned down an appeal from the ACLU that challenged the Bush administration’s warrantless-wiretapping program.
