Supreme Court Opinion Regarding Challenging Seizure Of Drug Evidence

This week, the United States Supreme Court released its decision in Alvarez v. Smith.  The SCOTUS Blog had the following blurb today:
JURIST covers yesterday’s decision in Alvarez v. Smith, holding that individuals whose personal property was seized during a drug investigation could not challenge the seizure because the parties had already resolved underlying disputes concerning ownership; also reporting on Alvarez, the Volokh Conspiracy observes that in its ruling, the Court avoided the “potentially important” constitutional question, while the Christian Science Monitor recaps the case’s background.
