New DUI case from U.S. Supreme Court. J. Sotomayor writes for the majority: "The question presented here is whether the natural metabolization of alcohol in the bloodstream presents a per se exigency that justifies an exception to the Fourth Amendment's warrant requirement for nonconsensual blood testing in all drunk-driving cases. We conclude that it does not, and we hold, consistent with general Fourth Amendment principles, that exigency in this context must be determined case by case based on the totality of the circumstances." http://www.supremecourt.gov/Search.aspx?FileName=/docketfiles/11-1425.htmFileName=/docketfiles/11-1425.htm
