This is an important analysis for any practitioner.
Those are the words of John Wesley Hall.
I've been reading this fella's search-and-seizure blog for years. When Mr. Hall makes that kind of comment, I sit up and take notice.
Want a fast breakdown of your rights during a police encounter? Want to know where the boundaries are? Want to get a feel for how the courts are going to analyze the facts? Then, read this court opinion out of Kansas.
As Mr. Hall said, "This is an important analysis for any practitioner." Of course, he's talking about criminal defense lawyers. But, the value of the information still holds, even for open-carriers.
