Fernandez v. California

Docket No., 12-7822

Questions Presented:

Under Georgia v. Randolph, 547 U.S. 103, 126 S.Ct. 1515, 164 L.Ed.2d 208 (2006), must a defendant be personally present and objecting when police officers ask a co-tenant for consent to conduct a warrantless search or is a defendant's previously-stated objection, while physically present, to a warrantless search a continuing assertion of 4th Amendment rights which cannot be overridden by a co-tenant?
