Definition Edit

The Third Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, part of the Bill of Rights, prevents the government from quartering soldiers in civilian's homes during peace time without the consent of the civilian.

Overview Edit

"The Court has found protection of a right to privacy against unreasonable surveillance and compulsory disclosure in the Third Amendment’s protection against quartering soldiers. This protection has generally been viewed as secondary to the broader protection of the Fourth Amendment."[1]
