ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the U.S. Federal Court's attempt to reform the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution in an effort to protect individual privacy from impending technology, in the Katz v. United States case. Post Katz cases have slowly chipped away at many fundamental policies underlying the Katz decision. Thirtyfive years after the decision the U.S. has reached a situation where the rapid development of technologies has a potential to fall outside the purview of the Fourth Amendment. The question discussed is whether the amendment will remain a source of privacy protections in a technologically advanced world.
