Raleigh Lawyer Weighs in on Recent SCOTUS Cell Phone Privacy Decision

The ruling does not mean that the contents are off limits completely, just that officials are required to show probable cause and must wait for a magistrate (judge) to issue a proper warrant.  There are also a few exceptions where exigent circumstances might excuse the warrantless search of a cell phone, but such circumstances will be highly scrutinized to ensure they comply with the law.

Well-established Raleigh law firms like Kurtz & Blum work hard to protect and defend the rights of their clients. We routinely challenge questionable law enforcement practices to ensure our clients receive the best possible outcome.
