Riley v. California is perhaps the Supreme Court’s most important Fourth Amendment case in years. In that case, a majority of the Court held that the police need a warrant to search digital information on a cellphone seized from an individual who has been arrested. Given the amount of information we store on our smartphones—every e-mail we’ve ever written, all the text messages we have ever sent, our web-browsing habits—this decision seems like an important step forward for protecting individual rights in a world where technology poses ever greater risks of invasions of privacy. The IILP, the American Constitution Society, and the Federalist Society are pleased to bring the NYLS community together for a discussion of Riley and personal privacy in an age of invasive technology. Professors Nadine Strossen and Ari Waldman will discuss the Riley decision and what it means for us, for our communities, and for the future of government power.
