Von Cleef v. New Jersey, 395 U.S. 814 (1969)

Von Cleef v. New Jersey

No. 837

Decided June 23, 1969

395 U.S. 814


Petitioner Von Cleef was arrested on the third floor of a 16-room house in which she lived. Police, without a search warrant, then searched the entire house and seized several thousand articles, many of which were introduced at trial. The New Jersey courts concluded that the search and seizures were constitutionally permissible as incident to a valid arrest.

Held: It is not necessary to decide whether Chimel v. California, ante, p. 395 U. S. 752, applies retroactively, as the scope of the search and seizures here was "beyond the sanction of any" previous decision, Kremen v. United States, 353 U. S. 346, 353 U. S. 347.

Certiorari granted; 102 N.J.Super. 102, 245 A.2d 495, reversed and remanded.
