Hill: Exclusionary Rule Inapplicable in Revocation Proceedings

In United States v. Hill, No. 19-10647 (William Pryor, Jill Pryor, Marcus) (per curiam), the Court held--without oral argument--that the exclusionary rule does not apply in supervised release revocation proceedings.

In so holding, the Court joined six other circuits that have reached that conclusion.  The Court relied primarily on a Supreme Court decision declining to extend the exclusionary rule to state parole revocation proceedings.  The defendant failed to present any argument on appeal for why that decision did not apply equally to the supervised release context.
