There's some pretty amazing fallout from the Ninth Circuit's hearing of an appeal on the baseball drug testing case.

To me, the majority opinion reads like a giant middle finger extended in the government's direction. This isn't just smacking the government's hand after it's caught in the cookie jar; this is cutting that hand off, and then sealing the jar in a block of cement and hiding it in an underground bunker. It's a massive rejection of cowboy-style law enforcement when it comes to digital information.

The chances of it surviving an appeal to the Roberts Supreme Court seem about nil to me, but at least someone in the judicial branch is pushing back.
