In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court ruled this morning that police need warrants to search cellphones of people they arrest. In April, the Supreme Court looked at two cases: one involving a flip phone, and the other a smartphone. David L. Riley was arrested in San Diego in 2009, for having an expired auto registration. The police who pulled him over found loaded guns in his car and searched his smartphone, ultimately finding evidence linking him to a street gang and a shooting.
