Supreme Court Will Decide Cellphone Warrant Issue

By June 12, 2017 No Comments

Last week the U.S. Supreme Court agreed “to decide whether the government needs a warrant to obtain information from cellphone companies showing their customers’ locations,” reports the New York Times. The case it will consider “concerns historical data held by cellphone companies that shows users’ movements over time and could, for instance, place them at the scene of a crime.” The broad issue behind this case is American citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure by the government.
