Court Reins In Border Patrol: Laptop Searches Require "Reasonable Suspicion".

The Ninth Circuit Court has ruled : Passsword protection is not sufficient cause to consider it a 'reasonable search', but may be considered along with other factors. Reasonable suspicion must also be proven before invasive snooping occurs.

The court rules that the Fourth Amendment applies to password protected files, as being well within the intent of the Framers of the Bill of Rights.
