What constitutes an unreasonable search and seizure?

Residents of Washington State and any other state in the country are lucky to live in a free nation that protects its citizens from government overreach. For example, the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects people against unreasonable searches and seizures. While the notion of what type of search is reasonable is rather slippery in the eyes of the law, in general the key is whether the individual had a legitimate right to expect privacy in the place being searched. There is a two-prong test that is used when determining whether such a right to expect privacy exists.
