Submission + - Proposed NJ law allows cops to search phones at crash scenes (nj.com)

WML MUNSON writes: License, registration and cell phone, please. Police officers across New Jersey could be saying that to motorists at the scenes of car crashes if new legislation introduced in the state Senate becomes law. The measure would allow cops — without a warrant — to thumb through a cell phone to determine if a driver was talking or texting when an accident occurred. It requires officers to have "reasonable grounds" to believe the law was broken.

Submission + - NJ woman charged after creating fake Facebook prof (nj.com)

WML MUNSON writes: "A Belleville, NJ woman faces charges after she made a fake Facebook profile about her ex-boyfriend. Her lawyer says that while she may have violated Facebook rules, there's no law in New Jersey against creating a profile of anyone online. Morris County prosecutors say that even though the ID theft law doesn't mention the Internet, her action harmed her ex-boyfriend's reputation."
