U.S. v. Delgado (9th Cir. - Oct. 7, 2008)

I guess I could have figured it out by reasoning from first principles. But I'll admit my ignorance, and that I did not know -- until this morning -- that the police can conduct warrantless seizures/stops of commercial trucks for with no probable cause (or even reasonable suspicion) whatsoever.

But apparently that's the case.

I understand the reasoning. Just add this to the list of areas (border searches, aerial surveillance, etc.) in which you are subject to being searched and/or seized for any, or no, reason.
