    From what I read, if he is determined to be acting as a journalist then the DA would have been required to use a subpoena instead of a search warrant. The search warrant would then be invalid and all evidence would be fruit of the poison tree and would not be admissible.

    I'll see if I can find the link that I gleaned this from.

    Here is the quote about the issuing of a search warrant..

    “Under both state and federal law, a search warrant may not be validly issued to confiscate the property of a journalist,” she wrote in a letter to San Mateo County, Calif., authorities on Saturday. “Jason is a journalist who works full time for our company,” she continued, adding that he works from home, his “de facto newsroom.”
    The article is here
