Supreme Court Takes Case involving the Warrantless Search of Cellphones

 

 

One of the biggest Fourth Amendment cases to go before the U.S. Supreme Court in recent memory will be heard this month.

This is a critical issue, the idea of the police being able to view the contents of your smartphone and see what you have stored on the smartphone.

As an aside, the Louisiana Supreme Court has writ application pending on the same issue.
