Search and Seizure: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue.

Real life example: Facebook hit the end of the line in a long fight with New York prosecutors when the State Court of Appeals, in a 5-to-1 ruling, upheld lower court rulings that New York law does not allow a social media company to appeal a judge’s decision to issue search warrants in a criminal case.

Facebook had argued that it should have a right to appeal such decisions, particularly if the company believes those warrants violate the constitutional rights of its users, as James C. McKinley Jr. writes.
