United States v. Odoni

Case Date: 01/13/2015
Citation: United States v. Odoni, 782 F.3d 1226 (11th Cir. 2015)
Court Type: Federal Circuit Court
Court: 11th Circuit Court of Appeals (11th Cir.)
Judge: Circuit Judge: Susan H. Black
Rule(s): 4th Amendment
Issues:

Whether Defendant Gunter had a reasonable expectation of privacy inĀ  electronic data files seized by British authorities, and whether the search and seizure violated his Fourth Amendment rights.

Resolution:

The Court held that Defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights were not violated, and affirmed the denial of Defendant Gunter’s motion to suppress. Because the electronic evidence was seized by a foreign government and then analyzed by foreign government officials prior to being searched by the United States, Defendant Gunter had no reasonable expectation of privacy in the data.
