New Law Bans Warrantless Cell Phone Searches

A new law in California has banned warrantless cell phone searches (again). eek! Thanks to TheWeazmeister for the link.

If you get arrested in California for any reason, the photos, e-mails and other personal data on your cell phone are now a bit safer from prying police eyes. A new law now requires law-enforcement officers in that state to obtain a warrant before searching the cell phone of a person placed under arrest.
