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.
