+ - Supreme Court rules cell phones can't be searched without a warrant->

Submitted by CarlThansk
CarlThansk (3713681) writes "The courts have long debated on if cell phones can be searched during an arrest without a warrant. Today, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the police need warrants to search the cellphones of people they arrest.

"Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., writing for the court, said the vast amount of data contained on modern cellphones must be protected from routine inspection.""
