The police need a warrant to search the contents of your mobile phone.

Miraculously, it was a unanimous decision. (I was half-expecting Scalia or Thomas to write an opinion saying that there were no mobile phones when the 4th Amendment was adopted, so it doesn't apply.)

If anyone cares to read the opinion, it's here: Yes, your phone is private.

I was just coming to post this.

A 9-0 decision with an opinion written by the Chief Justice is about as big a win as you can get.

Can't get any clearer than 9-0.

Seriously. Especially with this Court. To get a unanimous decision...I, too, am surprised that either Scalia or Thomas didn't object just to do so.
