- Supreme Court Rules Against Warrantless Cell Phone Searches
  • Supreme Court Rules Against Warrantless Cell Phone Searches

    Today, the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) limited the powers police have when arresting suspects and searching their cell phones without a warrant. SCOTUS, in a rare unanimous decision has ruled that in searches of property from a suspect either on their person or from a vehicle, a cellphone cannot be searched without a warrant. The ruling was limited however, in such cases when an officer can search a phone if the officer feels his or her safety or the lives of others.

    Cellphones are powerful devices unlike anything else police may find on someone they arrest, Chief Justice John Roberts said for the court. Because the phones contain so much information, police must get a warrant before looking through them, Roberts said.
    What do you think of this ruling? Is it correct in your eyes? Or are you of the opinion, if I'm not doing anything wrong, why should I mind if my cell phone is searched? Please let us know in the comments below.
