    California Supreme Court Rules Your Cellphone is Subject to Warrantless Searches


    According to a California Supreme Court ruling filed just yesterday, it is now perfectly legal for California police to search your cell phone without a warrant if it is present on you during your arrest. Looks like digital information privacy just got a lot less private, at least in California anyway. Interestingly, after I did some digging, I found out that earlier in February 2010, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled just the opposite, stating that it violates a suspects 4th Amendment Constitutional Rights to search through your cell phone without a warrant. Hmmm... they can't both be right? It's interesting to see what new 'legal' problems new technologies like smartphones create. What do you wanna bet that in the next 5-10 years we'll see this stuff argued at the Federal Supreme Court level? For now, if your going to get arrested with naughty pictures of your girlfriend on your cellphone, make sure it's in Ohio, and not California. :icon_eek:
