As you know we live in a digital world where we are surrounded by electronic devices that enable us to communicate with each other wirelessly through cell phones, computers and a variety of other electronic equipment. Video cameras record traffic violations as well as observing pedestrian and vehicular traffic. However with this increased electronic monitoring comes more scrutiny of us as individuals. Your research assignment deals with an individual's digital information becoming available to governmental agencies on the local, state and federal levels and what safeguards are available to us as citizens.

The question dealt with by the court was "Does the warrantless search and seizure of cell phone records which includes the location and movements of cell phone users violate the Fourth Amendment?". How did the Supreme Court vote in this case and who wrote the majority opinion? Do you agree or disagree with the opinion and WHY.

Your project should include an in-depth discussion of the following areas:
