No warrant? That's okay if you're searching
poor folks' homes, court says

San Diego County's aggressive program, known as Project 100%, does not violate the state or federal constitutional bans against unreasonable searches or invasion of personal privacy.

Eric Isaacson, who argued the case for the ACLU, said he was “deeply disappointed” and that the decision showed a “disturbing lack of empathy for the poor.”
