Carpenter v. U.S. on digital privacy under the Fourth Amendment
SCOTUS 2018; Major decisions and developments of the U.S. Supreme Court
Is the location of a cell phone something that is private and protected from warrantless search by the Fourth Amendment, or are the electronic data that indicate a person’s location owned by the phone company, which can offer them to law enforcement if they choose? The multiple layers of constitutional questions about the nature of electronic data, personal privacy, and law enforcement are addressed in the Court’s decision in Carpenter, reflecting our changing conceptions of the nature and ownership of electronic data.
