EFF Tells CA Supreme Court Warrantless DNA Collection Unconstitutional

DNA is the most intimate and revealing part of the human body, with the potential to reveal a person — and their family’s — medical history and predisposition to disease. Because it’s so sensitive, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has filed an amicus brief (PDF) in the California Supreme Court urging it to rule that the Fourth Amendment prohibits the warrantless collection of DNA from individuals presumed innocent who are not yet convicted of a crime.
