Carpenter v. United States

Case Date: 06/22/2018
Citation: Carpenter v. United States, 138 S. Ct. 2206 (2018)
Court Type: Federal Supreme Court
Court: U.S. Supreme Court
Judge: Chief Justice (CJ): John G. Roberts
Rule(s): 4th Amendment
Issues:

Whether an individual is entitled to Fourth Amendment protections when the Government conducts a search using cell phone location records that accurately reflect an individual’s movements.

Resolution:

Judgment of the Court of Appeals reversed and remanded for further proceedings. The Court held that an individual has a reasonable expectation of privacy in the record of his/her movements as captured through cell-site location information (CLSI), and that the CLSI provided by Defendant’s wireless carriers constituted a search. Thus, the Government must generally obtain a warrant supported by probable cause before acquiring such information.
