Do a Case brief of US v Jones, 132 S Ct 945 (2012). It should be 3 to 5 pages. Make sure you have it in the proper format for case briefs (facts, issue, holding, rationale). State the facts of the case and the lower court decisions, which preceded it to the Supreme Court. Clearly spell out the issue that the case presented and the resultant holding. Explain the rationale delineating the precedent cases that the court analyzed and did the case create new law or follow precedents already stated by the Court. Hint: the court analyzed the following 3 cases so you MUST include them in your rationale: Katz v US; US v Knotts; and Kyollo v US. Although it was a 9-0 decision, there were 3 opinions written so read and explain them all with a focus on the majority opinion. This assignment is worth 25 points so be thorough.
