New Jersey Supreme Court Holds that Individuals Have Protected Privacy Interest in the Location of Their Cell Phones
In a case of first impression, the New Jersey Supreme Court held that “Article I, Paragraph 7 of the New Jersey Constitution protects an individual’s privacy interest in the location of his or her cell phone.” State v. Earls, 214 N.J. 564, 588, 70 A.3d 630, 644 (2013). This decision followed a line of New Jersey cases which established that the State Constitution protects the right to privacy in the information disclosed to third-party service providers in a course of indispensable daily activities, such as Internet addresses, banking records, and phone bills. See State v Reid, 194 N.J. 386, 389 (2008); State v. McAllister, 184 N.J. 17, 19 (2005); State v Hunt, 91 N.J. 338, 338-44 (1982).
