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.
