9th Circuit’s Reconsideration of DNA Collection Program Won’t Be the Last Case in the Sequence

In jail in San Francisco after being arrested at an anti-war rally three years ago, Lily Haskell had a decision to make.

Give a DNA sample, as felony arrestees in California must do, or refuse the cheek swab and get charged with an additional misdemeanor.

She chose the latter.

Now Haskell’s the lead plaintiff in a suit that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is rehearing next month. It’s a test case dealing with one of the hottest Fourth Amendment issues the country faces — the expectation of privacy that people have over their DNA.
