What Does the Supreme Court’s Cell Phone Privacy Ruling Say About NSA Surveillance?, today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

Today we’ll discuss the Supreme Court’s ruling in Riley v. California (joined with United States v. Wurie), in which the Court held that a government agent may not peruse the data held on a cell phone as part of a warrantless “search incident to arrest.” In order to search data on a cell phone, the government agent would need either to get a warrant, or to search pursuant to another exception to the warrant requirement (e.g., exigent circumstances). We’ll discuss the ruling itself and also its possible implications for the cases on which I have my primary focus: those challenging the NSA’s bulk metadata collection program.

We’ll also discuss a lot more–see Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., we plan to discuss.

Snowden Was Right to Fear That Nothing Would Change, Today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

The title of today’s show was inspired by a video assignment I got early this week but, as you’ll see, my point was unfortunately proven again by the latest news about Obama’s surveillance state. See the link to that story below, along with all the others on a variety of topics that we plan to discuss today.
