Cops can’t search cellphone seized at arrest, Florida Supreme Court says; will case go to SCOTUS?

They had the phone. The perp wasn't able to destroy the evidence. Get a warrant. Pure laziness or stupidity from LEO.

Thank you Florida Supreme Court for being reasonable.

For everyone else, your cell phone should be password protected and set to wipe itself after five or six incorrect attempts at a login.

Hmm. Could the Florida jurists, when they decided the case, have subconsciously imagined THEIR cell phone data getting searched?
