EFF has urged a California state court to suppress evidence gathered by law enforcement from a suspect's iPhone during a warrantless search, including phone book contacts, called phone numbers, emails, text messages, Internet search history, and photos.

In People v. Taylor, the Daly City, California police seized a suspect's password-protected iPhone during his arrest, and then bypassed the password and searched it at the police station hours later without a warrant. After the police realized that the information on the phone was too extensive to write down, they finally sought a warrant to search the device.

EFF has asked a judge to suppress all evidence collected from the phone as a result of the warrantless search, and to quash the warrant that was issued in part on the basis of the information illegally accessed on the phone.

Please see full Motion To Suppress below for more information.
