Question about the third party doctrine. If I hand google drive an encrypted file, do I have a reasonable expectation of the privacy wrt the decrypted data?



Well, the encrypted file would probably not have a "reasonable expectation of privacy". The government would probably acquire the encrypted version from Google, then decrypt it; I don't see why any court would make a finding with respect to the expectation of privacy of the decrypted file.
