United States v. Owens
7th Circuit Court of Appeals; Case No. 17-1989
On Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, Case No. 16-cr-00038-JPS.
The warrant violated the Fourth Amendment because it failed to particularly describe what was being searched and where those searches would occur. Particularity was critical given the series of invasive searches and seizures carried out each time the malware was deployed. Other constitutionally suspect types of warrants offer far more particularity than the warrant here.
