In Minnesota v. Carter, 525 U.S. 83 (1998), the U.S. Supreme Court held that the Fourth Amendment did not protect against the viewing by an outside police officer, through a drawn window blind, of the defendants' bagging cocaine in an apartment.

The Supreme Court of Minnesota had held that the officer's viewing was a search that violated respondents' Fourth Amendment rights. Chief Justice William Rehnquist, writing for a 6-3 Court, found that no violation had occurred and reversed the decision of the state court.
