Rory Little has filed an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court on behalf of the American Bar Association in Virginia v. Moore, No. 06-1082. The question presented in Moore is "whether it is unreasonable to arrest a person when there is probable cause to believe that a minor offense has been committed, but state law prohibits an arrest for that offense unless there are circumstances that would reasonably support arrest (such as danger or likelihood of non-appearance)?" Rory's brief is posted at http://www.scotusblog.com/.
