Professor Eunice Park published “The Elephant in the Room: What is a ‘Nonroutine’ Border Search, Anyway? Digital Device Searches Post-Riley” in the Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly, 44:3 Hastings Const. L.Q. 277 (2017). The article proposes an approach that obviates distinguishing between routine and nonroutine electronic device border searches, and rethinks the applicability in the digital era of notions of ingress versus egress, and imminent versus ongoing crime, in balancing the tension between law enforcement interests and individual privacy rights.
