Engel published an article in Law Technology News: Courts Still Divided on Police Searches of Cell Phones. In the article, Engel discusses a recent Colorado opinion on cell phone searches. Engel notes that a Colorado court has continued the split among courts about the ability, under the Fourth Amendment, for police to search cell phones. The case is People v. Taylor, Colo. Court of Appeals, 5th Div. No. 09CA2681 (June 7, 2012).
In Taylor, the police justified the cell phone search of a suspected drug dealer under the "search incident to arrest" exception to the warrant requirement. In brief, under this exception to the Fourth Amendment, police may search any objects in the possession or reach of an arrested person.
