Mapp v. Ohio (1961)

Dolree Mapp was arrested after her home was searched by police without a warrant and officers found obscene material. She argued that the documents should be supressed because it was an illegal search and seizure. The Supreme Court agreed, ruling that illegally obtained material cannot be used in a criminal trial.
