Tad Brittingham, attorney at The Law Office of Steven R. Adams, LLC, currently has a case at the Ohio Supreme Court after a three-year battle in lower courts. The case is taking a deep look at whether or not it is constitutional for police to stop a driver if someone anonyously shouts that they are drunk. Ohio law states that police are required to investigate complaints like these before they can stop and search someone. The Ohio Supreme Court will be focusing on who the anonymous tip actually came from: a man who has not yet been identified.
Oral arguments in the case were delivered on March 30th to the Ohio Supreme Court, and a decision is expected to be made soon.
