Wow. I’m shocked. This SCOTUS seemed to really love that Police State. Good for them.

Getting a warrant isn’t that difficult, this one is a no-brainer.

Go grab a warrant, Barney Fife!

In the meantime I’ll do a password-protected backup and then do a factory default reset of my phone because it was, um, unresponsive. Search away!

(Yes, there are forensics experts [they have plenty of free time since they aren’t working the IRS case] but in the meantime the local constabulary will be flummoxed.)

“The Court does hold that a warrantless search is permitted in exigent circumstances, which is always true for searches. That is limited, however. The Court gives the examples of child abduction and the threat of bombs being detonated.”

“The Court does not even permit warrantless searches that are related to the reasons for an arrest.”

Yes, but those Track Phones you buy at Family Dollar for $10 and register in the names of Thad Cochran, Henri Brooks, Hillary Clinton, etc..... just to text inflamatory tweets sure does make for fun.

That's assuming that you still have possession of the phone, aren't in handcuffs and can just pull it out without getting shot like a panting chihuahua by the cops.

The ruling was unanimous. I don't know why you feel compelled to give a backhanded compliment.

Do you have a experience obtaining search warrants?

and here Rightward Ho used the literary device called "sarcasm..." some people choose to be witty in their style of sharing their thoughts in some instances... not everyone wants to be Ernest Hemingway-like all the time...

Anyone have an answer on how this interacts with use of the Stingray device?

The Stingray gathers information (even if only minimal) from numerous phones in its area of operation. Now if LE needs a warrant to search a phone after an arrest, it seems to me that it would need a warrant for taking information from phones in the general area of Stingray operation, not just those of people it arrests. Obviously impossible, since innocent people just wander in and out of the Stingray area without even knowing about it.

Is it possible that we can kill two onerous practices with one stone?
