Instructions
Your discussion prompt
The court Case 18.1 – Carpenter v. United States found that the acquisition of Carpenter’s cell-site location information was a search protected under the Fourth Amendment, it still recognized that we have no choice about providing location data to third parties
when using a cell phone. Do you think that the government should be able to access a person’s cell phone records if the records
sought are relevant and material to an ongoing criminal investigation? Should cell phone companies require opt-in consent from
subscribers alerting them that their cell phone data is stored and may be shared if compelled by law enforcement?
