US v. Wahchumwah

EFF filed an amicus brief in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in support of Ricky Wahchumwah, a tribal member of the Yakima Nation who was suspected of selling bald and gold eagle feathers in violation of federal law. As part of the investigation, a undercover agent from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service went to Wahchumwah's house, pretending to be interested in buying feathers and pelts. Wahchumwah let him in his house, not knowing that the agent was secretly recording everything with a tiny video camera hidden in his clothes.  Wahchumwah moved to suppress the video evidence as an unreasonable search under the Fourth Amendment.
