+ - Judge limits DHS laptop border searches->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "A federal judge has ruled that border agents cannot seize a traveler's laptop, keep in locked up for months, and examine it for contraband files without a warrant half a year later. The ruling apparently says searches at the border are permissible, but that a warrant is required to seize the device for later examination."
