    US Supreme Court Won't Take up Smart Phone Password Case

    US Supreme Court Won't Take up Smart Phone Password Case

    US Supreme Court Won't Take up Smart Phone Password Case
    State v. Andrews - the United States Supreme Court is following the lead of the New Jersey Supreme Court. In 2020 the New Jersey Supreme Court in a split 4-3 decision found that compelling a criminal defendant to disclose mobile phone passwords is permissible and does not violate the 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination. Justice Solomon wrote the majority opinion. Justice La Vecchia wrote the dissent. In not taking the case up, the US Supreme Court put its stamp of approval on New Jersey's interpretation of the current state of the law. This is a fast-moving evolution and certainly not the last word on technology, passwords and access to the merging of the human brain and Technology.
