SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A federal appeals court has heard arguments in a challenge to a Michigan city’s practice of marking tires to catch people who ignore time limits on parking.

Alison Taylor is appealing a decision that went in favor of Saginaw. Her attorney argues that chalking tires violates the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable searches.

The case made headlines in 2019 when the same appeals court said marking tires could be illegal without a warrant in some circumstances.

The court sent the lawsuit back to a federal judge in Michigan, but he eventually ruled against Taylor again. A different three-judge panel at the appeals court heard arguments Thursday.
