The SG has filed this brief in opposition to the cert petition in Clayton v. United States, No. 09-1532.

Here’s the QP from the cert petition:

WHETHER PETITIONER’S FOURTH AMENDMENT RIGHT TO BE FREE FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHES AND SEIZURES WAS VIOLATED WHEN A MILITARY JUDGE FOUND PROBABLE CAUSE TO SEARCH PETITIONER’S QUARTERS DESPITE A COMPLETE ABSENCE OF EVIDENCE THAT PETITIONER HAD DOWNLOADED OR POSSESSED ANY CHILD PORNOGRAPHY AND WHERE THERE WAS NO NEXUS OF ANY TYPE BETWEEN CHILD PORNOGRAPHY AND THE LOCATION SEARCHED.

And here’s the QP from the brief in opposition:  “Whether probable cause existed to search petitioner’s
military quarters in Kuwait for evidence of child pornography.”  The full cert petition is available here.
