Continuing what many privacy advocates will see as a disturbing trend against 4th Amendment protections in the state of California (and elsewhere), Governor Brown has vetoed the ‘Leno’ bill, SB 914. The bill would have required the government to obtain a warrant to search a cellular device upon an arrest. This follows on the heels of the Supreme Court of the United States declining to grant review of the Diaz case.
In another California case, the 2nd District Court of Appeal cited Diaz in upholding the warrantless search of a digital camera.
These days, if you blink, you may miss another decision affecting the concept of privacy in the United States.
