 The following claim has been proposed. If you have constructive suggestions for
improving it, please follow-up to this message. Thank you.

claim: SSCBSA
owner: 7395 (fej)
judge: TBD
short: Alain Philippon Loses Case
long:
In North America, since at least the days of the Bush/Martin
governments in US/Canada, attempts have been made to harmonize border 
policies in the United States and Canadian border regions. One such
example is that both governments attempt to maintain the ultimate
right to search the computers, cellphones and other non-paper data
storage devices of travelers as they travel from country to country.
However their right to do so, at least on the Canadian side, was not
legally tested until 2015 when Alain Philippon, 38, of
Ste-Anne-des-Plaines, Quebec refused to allow the CBSA agents access
to his data. Philippon has since been charged under section 153.1 (b) 
of the Customs Act for hindering or preventing border officers from
performing their role under the act and his case is going through the 
courts.

If Philippon wins his case in the Quebec court system without going
to the supreme court, this claim will be judged 1.

If Philippon loses his case and his case is subsequently refused by
the supreme court of canada, it will be judged 0.

If Philippon loses his case, but the Supreme court hears the case,
this claim will be judged on a scale based on how many supreme court
justices vote in favour of Philippon, divided evenly among them and
against the border security agents having this power. There are 9
supreme court justices, so for example if the outcome is 4-3 in his
favour (ie he wins by 1 vote, with 2 abstentions), it will pay out
4/9*100% = 45 (rounded up in case of a fractional amount).
