Submission + - Judge limits DHS laptop border searches (cnet.com)

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.
