Byrd v. United States Oral Argument The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Byrd v. United States. The case centers on whether drivers have a reasonable expectation of privacy while in a rental car they did not rent and are not authorized under the rental agreement to operate. In 2014, Terrence Byrd’s girlfriend rented a car and gave him permission to drive it. While driving, police pulled him over. conducted a warrantless search, and found drugs and body armor in the vehicle. He was arrested and charged. Mr. Byrd appealed to a federal district court, which ruled against him saying he had no expectation of privacy because he was not listed in the rental contract. The Third Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with this ruling.

On May 14, 2018, the Court ruled unanimously that a driver has a reasonable expectation of privacy while in a rental car that she or he did not rent and is not authorized under the rental agreement to operate. close
