This is a revision of the original Search and Seizure Survey published in The University of Puget Sound Law Review volume 9, number 1 (Fall 1985). This Survey, as did the first Survey, summarizes the predominant treatment of search and seizure issues under the fourth amendment and under article I, section 7 to the extent that this state provision is interpreted differently from the federal. The Survey focuses primarily on substantive search and seizure law in the criminal context; it omits discussion of many procedural issues such as retroactivity.
