[NYTimes] Judge Says Search Warrants for E-mails Must Be ‘Limited’

Can law enforcement obtain a search warrant to dig through a vast trove of e-mails, instant messages and chat logs because they have reasonable suspicion that the owners of those accounts robbed computer equipment from a private company?

No, according to a ruling by a federal judge in Kansas earlier this week.

The case is significant in that it limits what constitutes unreasonable search and seizure, as protected by the Fourth Amendment, in the age of big data. The magistrate judge, David J. Waxse, denied the
government’s search warrant requests on the grounds that it has to be particular and “reasonable in nature of breadth.”

Thank goodness.

I can honestly say, though, that a lot of departments in the sunny Southeast are very leery and very cautious about going through electronic data (emails, phones, etc.). There is a lot of uncertainty about where and how the 4th applies and nobody wants to be made example of. There are a couple of bigger departments in the middle and northeast of the country who are about to get curbstomped in court in the very near future.

I sincerely hope so, we need to reign in all of this garbage ASAP.
