In Illinois v. Caballes, 533 U.S. 27 (2005), a 7-2 U.S. Supreme Court upheld the use of drug-sniffing dogs without probable cause and without a warrant to smell for drugs outside the trunk of a car stopped for speeding. The rationale was that the drugs could only detect unlawful activity in the trunk of the car, and thus there was no violation of the Fourth Amendment.
