UNITED STATES v. KING
Barry J. Portman, Federal Public Defender, Daniel P. Blank,
Assistant Federal Pubic Defender, San Francisco, California,
for the appellant.
Melinda Haag, United States Attorney, Barbara J. Valliere,
Chief, Appellate Division, Assistant United States Attorney,
Suzanne B. Miles, Assistant United States Attorney, San
Francisco, California, for the appellee.
 We overrule Motley v. Parks, 432 F.3d 1072 (9th Cir.
2005), the precedent on which it relies, Moreno v. Baca, 400
F.3d 1152 (9th Cir. 2005), and United States v. Harper, 928
F.2d 894 (9th Cir. 1991), and later cases that rely on it,
UNITED STATES v. KING

including United States v. Baker, 658 F.3d 1050 (9th Cir.
2011), Sanchez v. Canales, 574 F.3d 1169 (9th Cir. 2009),
and United States v. Lopez, 474 F.3d 1208 (9th Cir. 2007), to
the extent they hold that “there is no constitutional difference
between probation and parole for purposes of the fourth
amendment.” Motley, 432 F.3d at 1083 n.9 (internal quotation
marks omitted). These cases conflict with the Supreme
Court’s holding that “parolees have fewer expectations of privacy than probationers.” Samson v. California, 547 U.S. 843,
United States v. King, 672 F.3d 1133 (9th Cir. 2012), is
vacated, and the case is referred to the original panel for disposition consistent with this opinion.
