Cell Phone Privacy: Justices Confront a New World Order

from pulse.ncpolicywatch.org: The justices of the U.S. Supreme Court — the youngest of whom is 54 — confronted their own technological limits yesterday and struggled with creating new parameters for the right to privacy in a world where a person’s whole life can be documented on a cell phone… The justices’ questions themselves revealed varying levels of familiarity with their own cellphones. In an exchange between Justice Stephen Breyer, now 75, and an attorney representing California about data encryption on phones, the attorney said that he didn’t know what type of phone Breyer had. “I don’t, either, because I can never get into it because of the password,” Breyer replied.
