I think that anything BUT a unanimous ruling should mean an automatic return to the lower Court ruling.

Bingo!, The rulings should be based on law and not rhetorical arguments. Supreme Court rulings are winding up being political opinions. Either if fell within the current law or it didn't.

And never forget that supreme court justices were appointed and approved by politicians so how can there not be politics without favors to payoff and deals to be made.

The recent arrestee dna sample ruling is a perfect example of that. How can the seizure of one's dna not be considered an illegal search and seizure of your body.

DNA is a better identifier than fingerprints, but far more expensive.

There is in some localities a backlog 10 yrs of untested DNA evidence in rape cases.

It's not about identification it's about what they want to use for an identifier. DNA seized from the human body without a warrant theoretically should not be allowed period.

I don't care law enforcement or the justice system wants it's job handed to them on a silver platter. It's better to let 10 guilty go free than send one innocent man to jail. DNA might be harder to test but it's easier to obtain, plant, mix up, be contaminated and/or be abused.

This ruling or any supreme court ruling should be based on the legality of the law ie the constitution in the end. Rhetorical arguments should have nothing to do with it. Court rulings and proceedings should be based the merits of the law and not what one side desires to do.

Similarly, SCotUS decisions cannot be based upon unsupported trepidations about what might or might not happen.
