Scalia Could Be Linchpin To Progressive Privacy Decision

"In the past, defense lawyers did not look first to the conservative Scalia as an ally. But in recent years, he has insisted on forbidding the kinds of "unreasonable searches" that he says would have troubled the framers of the Constitution....With an eye toward Scalia, lawyers in the cellphone case have carefully quoted the Fourth Amendment, which protects the 'right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects.' In the 21st century, they say, many people store their 'papers and effects' on a mobile device." David G. Savage in the Los Angeles Times.
