Quarles & Brady mentioned in article “Gunfire-Locating Tech Not Enough for Police to Stop Vehicle”

Bloomberg Law

Below is an excerpt:

"A gunfire-locating technology called ShotSpotter can’t be the sole basis for police to stop a car, the Seventh Circuit said in a matter of first impression.

But the panel split on whether enough other articulable facts supported Peoria, Ill., police officer Travis Ellefritz’s stop and search of a car in which Terrill A. Rickmon Sr. was a passenger.


Chief Judge Diane P. Wood dissented. The facts don’t support reasonable suspicion, she said.

Quarles & Brady LLP represented Rickmon."
