Raising Old Fourth Amendment Challenges to New Technologies. Hanni M. Fakhoury EFF Staff Attorney. Fourth Amendment.
Hanni M. Fakhoury
EFF Staff Attorney
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
“The Court argues—and I agree—that ‘we must assur[e] preservation of that degree of privacy against government that existed when the Fourth Amendment was adopted. . .’ But it is almost impossible to think of late–18th-century situations that are analogous to what took place in this case.”
