The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Carpenter v. United States. The case concerns whether a search warrant is needed for law enforcement to gain access to a person’s cell phone location data history. Timothy Carpenter was convicted in connection to a string of armed robberies in Ohio and Michigan in 2010 and 2011. The government, through the Stored Communications Act, gained access to Mr. Carpenter’s cell phone location records and used this information to convict him. Mr. Carpenter filed suit arguing his Fourth Amendment rights were violated due to the lack of a search warrant. The district court and Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in the government’s favor.

On June 22, 2018, the Court ruled 5-4 that law enforcement must get a warrant to obtain cell phone location data. close
