Holding there is no reasonable expectation of privacy in an automobile, it reversed a conviction by the New York State Court of Appeals. Justice O'Connor wrote the opinion of the Court; Justice White filed a dissent, which was joined by Justice Stevens. Bench opinions are issued by the U.S. Supreme Court immediately after the announcement of a decision. Slip opinions are issued afterwards. Often incorporating corrections, they are the first printings of a decision intended for wide dissemination and review. After that stage the revised slip opinions are added to the latest paperback volume of United States Reports. A year later, that volume is printed in its final, authoritative, hardcover form.
