Indiana Panel Finds Warrantless GPS Search Violated 4th Amendment

Mealey's (July 9, 2015, 9:41 AM EDT) -- INDIANAPOLIS — Relying on Riley v. California (134 S.Ct. 2473 [2014]), an Indiana Court of Appeals panel on July 7 found that a man’s rights under the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution were violated when his global positioning system (GPS) device was searched by law enforcement officers without a search warrant because he had a reasonable expectation of privacy in the information on the device (Christopher Wertz v. State of Indiana, No. 48A04-1409-CR-427, Ind. App.; 2015 Ind. App. LEXIS 505).
