Calif. Supreme Court approves warrantless data seizures by police | Raw Story:
"If you're arrested in California, data stored on your mobile phone, tablet or other portable computing devices could be seized by police without so much as a search warrant.
That's thanks to a recent decision by the state's highest court, which declared on Monday that any and all expectations of privacy are lost once a defendant is in state custody.
By a vote of 5-2, the court said police may 'rummage at leisure through the wealth of personal and business information that can be carried on a mobile phone or handheld computer,' according to the dissenting opinion of Justice Kathryn Mickle Werdegar.
Werdegar was joined by Justice Carlos Moreno in opposing the decision."
