"Border agents operating at some U.S. ports of entry, airports and shipping ports are facing new limits regarding their ability to confiscate travelers’ personal electronic devices, according to a report."

"In a decision reached in June, the San Francisco-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit all but eliminated agents’ ability to access people’s cellphones and laptops without a warrant, according to Border Report."

"The decision – which applies only to the western U.S. states that lie within the Ninth Circuit’s jurisdiction -- effectively places limits on law enforcement in those areas to seek evidence of crime, the report said."
