The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument in U.S. v Wurie. The issue before the Court was whether police must obtain a search warrant before looking at data on a cell phone after a person has been arrested.

The police arrested Brima Wurie on suspicion of selling crack cocaine in 2007. While he was in police custody, his cellular phone kept receiving calls from a number identified as “my house.” Using the telephone number and a reverse directory, police located his address and obtained a warrant to search the home, where they found crack, marijuana, and a weapon.
