The Supreme Court of Canada has agreed to hear a case that will consider whether police can glean information from unlocked cellphones without a warrant, the court said. In a release Thursday, the Supreme Court said it will hear an appeal by Kevin Fearon, who was convicted of armed robbery after the police officers who arrested him searched through his unlocked cellphone and found photographs of cash and a gun, as well as incriminating text messages. A judge in Ontario’s Court of Appeal upheld the conviction in a February decision, stating that police were justified in accessing information on Fearon’s phone because the device was not locked or password protected at the time. The Supreme Court said it has granted Fearon leave to appeal the case with costs. The case, known as Kevin Fearon v. Her Majesty the Queen, will move forward under Supreme Court docket number 35298.
