Cell Phone Privacy

Mon, Nov 10, 2014 at 12:00AM

The Florida Supreme Court, in a 5-2 decision last month, ruled on the side of privacy and personal protections, by holding that law enforcement/police in Florida must first obtain a search warrant before they can use a person’s cell phone information to conduct “real-time” tracking of someone and their whereabouts.


The Florida Supreme Court recognized that cell phones are “indispensable to so many people and are normally carried on one’s person, cell phone tracking can easily invade the right to privacy in one’s home or other private areas, a matter that the government cannot always anticipate and one which, when it occurs, is clearly a Fourth Amendment violation.”
