State v. Oryall, 2018 UT App 211 (Nov. 8, 2018)

Nov 8, 2018

The defendant argued that the district court erred in denying her motion to suppress, because the officer conducted a search of her driver’s license records without reasonable suspicion.  Affirming, the court of appeals held that there is no reasonable expectation of privacy in driver’s license or vehicle registration records under the Utah Constitution.  In doing so, the court rejected defendant’s argument that GRAMA weighed in favor of recognizing a right to privacy, in part because the act permitted governmental entities to share private records in certain contexts.
