Supreme Court rules on smart phone protection in police searches

The Supreme Court says smart phones are protected from police searches without a warrant because it's following the guidance of a federal agency. The Court turned to the National Institute of Standards and Technology to learn more about mobile technology. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts cites the NIST Guidelines on Mobile Device Forensics three times in the court's opinion. The Court learned police can just turn off a cellphone while it obtains a warrant to stop someone from destroying its records.

As a former Justice assistant solicitor general and White House Counsel, he's argued seven cases before the Supreme Court. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss what the ruling means for future appointees.

Supreme Court ruling allows feds to appeal some discrimination cases in district court

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that federal employees can appeal decisions of the Merit Systems Protection Board stemming from discrimination-related complaints in federal district court. The ruling follows earlier lower court decisions that required employee appeals to go solely through the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The justices' decision applies to federal employees filing "mixed cases" complaints involving both allegations of wrongful termination and job discrimination under the Civil Service Reform Act.
