Courts: Turning Your Phone On Qualifies As Searching It

This is stuff you learn on day one at FBI training school. They FBI knew what they were doing and did it anyway.

"Here, the FBI physically intruded on Mr. Sam's personal effect when the FBI powered on his phone to take a picture of the phone's lock screen." That qualifies as a "search" under the terms of the Fourth Amendment, he found, and since the FBI did not have a warrant for that search, it was unconstitutional.
