Sanzone, Jr., was a guest legal commentator on "Justice with Judge Jeanine", on Fox television station debating whether New Jersey should pass a law to allow police officers on the scene to confiscate cell phones of motorists involved in a motor accident, without a judicial warrant to review data usage and data history to determine whether the motorist was using a non-hands free cell phone device causing the accident.
