U.S. top court throws out Los Angeles ordinance giving police access to hotel records

WASHINGTON

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Monday that a Los Angeles city ordinance that lets police view hotel guest registries violates the privacy rights of business owners.

In a 5-4 decision, the court upheld an appeals court ruling that struck down the ordinance that was intended to deter crimes including prostitution.
