The Justice Department suffered a digital-age defeat Friday at the Supreme Court, which sided with the privacy rights of cellphone users in a dispute over law enforcement tracking their movements. In a 5-4 ruling, the court said law enforcement generally will need a warrant for such searches. The Supreme Court also did away with a decades-old precedent limiting the ability of states to collect sales tax on certain out-of-state Internet purchases.
Fox News @ Night Anchor Shannon Bream joined Fox News Radio's Guy Benson and Marie Harf to share her insight on the rulings.
Remembering Charles Krauthammer: I feel brokenhearted. I mean he gave us the greatest gift a few weeks ago by telling us this was coming because I am so grateful that he was able to receive and feel this huge outpouring of love not only from all of us but from all the viewers who truly felt like they knew him and loved him like family.

On The Supreme Court Ruling on phone privacy: Well, this is a really big Fourth Amendment decision about search and seizure. So, today in the 5-4 decision the Chief Justice decided with the four we normally view with the left-leaning part of the court and said, 'No, we think even though technology changes we have to change with that.'

On ruling about online retailers: Now, they were all looking at this 1992 Supreme Court decision which required a physical presence so that the states couldn't collect something from a retailer unless you actually had a brick and mortar store and employees there. Justice Kennedy wrote for the majority. He said, '1992! Less than 2% of Americans even knew what the internet was or had it and everything has changed. So we think no. The world has changed.' (5:28)
