NAAUSA Comments on Amendment to Rule 41

The Advisory Committee's proposal would change Rule 41 in two ways. The first change is an amendment to Rule 41(b), which generally limits warrant authority to searches within a district, but permits out-of-district searches in specified circumstances. The second part of the proposal is a change to Rule 41(f)(1)(C), regulating notice that a search has been conducted. New language would be added at the end of that provision indicating the process for providing notice of a remote access search.

The National Association of Assistant United States Attorneys supports both of these changes because of their responsiveness to the challenges created by sophisticated technologies in the hands of criminals intent on causing harm to specific persons and the public at large.
