It's good to see that Minnesota has taken a step in the right direction. With Barajas, Minnesota has recognized at least some level of privacy in a cell phone. While this doesn't protect all information in a cell phone, it does offer some level of protection.
A11-0983 State of Minnesota, Respondent, vs. Marco Antonio Leon Barajas
Because a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy in the concealed contents of a cellular telephone, a search of the contents by the police is constitutionally unreasonable unless the police obtain a warrant or demonstrate the existence of a recognized exception to the warrant requirement.
