Indianapolis Business Journal – A divided U.S. Supreme Court threw out a Los Angeles ordinance that lets police inspect hotel registries without first getting a judge’s permission. The ruling raises questions about hundreds of similar laws around the country.
Laws allowing police inspections of hotel registries are in place in Indianapolis, Atlanta, Detroit, Seattle, St. Louis and Cincinnati. California alone has 70 such measures, including laws in San Diego and San Francisco, according to a court filing by the National League of Cities.
