Government argues that fake name removes expectation of privacy

In an ongoing Arizona case, the government has filed a memo arguing that the defendant had no expectation of privacy in a cell phone when it was registered under a fake name because doing so is fraudulent. The memo cites cases holding similarly with other property - specifically storage units (Johnson) and mailboxes (Lewis).

The most recent order from the court can be found at United States v. Rigmaiden, 2012 WL 27600 (D. Ariz. 2012). To learn more about the case, click here for a post from CYB3RCRIM3.
