Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- A new court ruling will likely return a handful of local drug related cases to court.

Judge Wick Corwin threw out evidence collected at the home of an alleged drug dealer because police used a drug sniffing dog outside the apartment without a warrant.

Corwin was going off a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

Police say the ruling shouldn't hamper future drug investigations, because officers can quickly get a warrant by contacting a judge.
