Ross Ulbricht to File 'Cutting Edge 4th Amendment Privacy in the Digital Age' Motions

EXCLUSIVE. has learned that the attorneys for Ross Ulbricht will submit,on his behalf, a new round of motions tomorrow addressing "cutting edge 4th amendment issues and privacy in the digital age."

I expect the motions to generate much discussion with regard to privacy in the age of the  internet.

The government alleges that Ulbricht was the founder and operator of Silk Road, an internet marketplace for Bitcoin transactions that allowed for the listing of all sorts of legal and illegal products, most notably drugs. Since the arrest of Ulbricht, the site has been shutdown. He is currently held without bail before trial in a Brooklyn detention facility. His trial is scheduled for Novemebr.
