In a major victory for sanity and constitutional limits in my home state, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled in favor of a man who was arrested for resisting the police when he refused to let them search his home without a warrant. The ruling was 5-2, with the two most conservative justices in dissent. The ruling overturns a 2004 case that had ruled the opposite. Our state high court generally sucks, but they finally got one right.
