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

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.


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.
