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.
