Description of Issues:

This year the problem is set in a "Dr. Who" universe and deals with First and Fourth Amendment issues.  The issues are as follows:

  1. Whether a plaintiff alleging violation of her First Amendment rights in a retaliatory arrest suit under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 must plead and prove lack of probable cause as an element of her claim.

  2. Whether a driver of a rental car who booked and paid for the rental but was not contractually authorized to drive it has a legitimate expectation of privacy sufficient to convey standing to sue over an unconstitutional vehiclesearch.
