In recent federal cases about whether or not the FBI could use secret surveillance devices to record citizens without a warrant, two judges hand down different, contradictory rulings. These rulings are not only very shocking, but they affect everyone.

An intruder enters a home, and surveillance video captured what the bugler came to steal. It’s not what you expect.

Attorneys must move quickly and take proper steps to ensure their evidence does not disappear. We've seen it happen!

Proceeding without a warrant, the FBI hid microphones outside a San Mateo, CA courthouse and recorded over 200 hours of conversations. Attorneys claim this act constitutes a 4th Amendment violation and the recordings are therefore inadmissible in court. A judge is set to rule soon on the status of this audio evidence.

In what appears to be a latent violation of our Fourth Amendment rights, officials in Baltimore have installed microphones on public buses that transmit everything to the government. Officials claim the eavesdropping is aimed at increasing public safety by monitoring for bus driver errors and attacks.

Smartphones are owned by about 2 of 3 people in the U.S., making it easier to record encounters with police. Be familiar with whether or not recording the police is lawful. And are recordings made unlawfully still admissible in court?

The Kelly Thomas civil trial settled last week with the city of Fullerton agreeing to pay plaintiff Ron Thomas $4.9 million. NCAVF reflects on how the video evidence and audio evidence played in the civil trial and the criminal trial (which concluded in January 2014 with all “not guilty” verdicts for the defendants).

Possessing a smartphone is now a vulnerability since the government and FBI have been hacking these phones to place US citizens under audio surveillance. The 4th Amendment is supposed to protect citizens from such activities, but perhaps not anymore.

NCAVF recently worked a case where a local attorney hired himself for his own case. The attorney won, in part thanks to NCAVF’s forensic photo analysis of picture evidence.

Whether attorneys win or lose their case be be determined by how well they understand and use evidence. Attorneys must be prepared for video evidence as departments continue to increase the use of police worn body cameras.
