Colorado Supreme Court still thinks there’s a 4th Amendment

In a 6-1 ruling:

Blocks of marijuana found in the “back room” of a Colorado Springs liquor store can’t be used as evidence against the store manager because he could reasonably expect privacy from searches of the back area under the U.S. Constitution, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled Monday. …

“Galvadon was the night manager and the sole person in control of the store,” Martinez wrote. “He used the back room to conduct the business of the store and maintained the right to exclude public access to the back room. … For these reasons, we find that Galvadon maintained a reasonable expectation of privacy in the back room.”

It’s nice to see the courts still give a nod to the 4th now and then.
