Court documents suggest the FBI paid a Geek Squad technician who located images of child abuse on a customer's computer $500 (£412).
Companies that carry out computer repairs are legally required to report such images, but a warrant is required for actively searching for material.
Defence lawyers argue that the FBI was directing the technician to look for illegal activity.
Geek Squad's parent company, Best Buy, and the FBI have denied any wrongdoing.
