(Washington, DC) -- The U.S. Supreme Court is out with a pair of major decisions. The high court ruled 9-0 today that police must obtain warrants before searching suspects' cellphones. Civil libertarians successfully argued that the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution covered cellphones in insuring the right of individuals to be "secure in their persons, houses, papers or effects." Additionally, the justices ruled against TV streaming startup Aereo, backing broadcasters in a closely watched copyright case.
