New Jersey law would allow police to immediately seize cellphones, records
from The Huffington Post
Lawmakers in New Jersey want police to be able to search a driver's cellphone immediately after a crash to see if the phone contributed to the accident. But the proposed legislation is not without its critics. "This bill is problematic because it infringes on the privacy rights of citizens," Alexander Shalom, the ACLU's state policy counsel, said in a media statement. "Our State and Federal Constitutions generally require probable cause before authorizing a search, particularly when it comes to areas that contain highly personal information such as cellphones."
