|United States Supreme Court case discussing the nature of the “right to privacy” and the legal definition of a “search”. The Court’s ruling adjusted previous interpretations of the unreasonable search and seizure clause of the Fourth Amendment to count immaterial intrusion with technology as a search, overruling Olmstead v. United States and Goldman v. United States. Katz also extended Fourth Amendment protection to all areas where a person has a "reasonable expectation of privacy". — Excerpted from Katz v.
