As the Burger Court continues to reduce the impact of the exclusionary rule as a matter of federal constitutional law, several states have expanded the exclusionary rule as a matter of state law.

The author suggests that in so doing, most federal courts have failed to address the proper issues, completely disregarding state interests.
