Jim Saunders reports:

In what is likely a first-of-its-kind case in Florida, a divided appeals court said authorities needed a warrant before they could download information recorded in a car’s “black box.”

The ruling by a panel of the Fourth District Court of Appeal approved a defendant’s request to suppress evidence that police retrieved from such a device in 2013 in a DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide case in Palm Beach County. More broadly, the ruling reflects a type of question that courts face as more and more information is captured on electronic devices.
