US government sued over warrantless phone and laptop border searches

Over the last few years, the instances of electronic devices being searched and/or detained at the border has dramatically increased. In the 2015 fiscal year, Customs and Border Security (CBP) reportedly searched over 8,000 electronic devices. That number doubled in 2016 to over 19,000, and it has been reported that in the first half of the 2017 fiscal year CBP has already conducted nearly 15,000 electronic device searches.
