Unit 8 Assignment: Course Project Part III Post University Law 101: Introduction to Law Carissa Griffis Aug. 17 th , 2023 Unit 8 Assignment:
The court based their final decision of the Carpenter vs. United States, 585 U.S. (2018) case that the court interpreted the part of the Constitution it based its decision on was that it was based on protection for the individual's privacy rights. They needed to ensure the correct protocol was followed and the information was accurate. It reached its decision because the Court had to ensure that the fourth amendment was not violated in getting cell phone records from the third party. It also tells us that request was granted so they were able to get the search warrant and the cell phone records to get the best and accurate information needed for the case. One previous decision that the Court relied upon in reaching its conclusion was that the defendant not only gave his location away freely, but he also voluntarily reveals the locations history he was present at from his device at the time of the crimes showing that he was guilty of the crimes that were committed.
