Supreme Court Deliver Victory for Privacy Rights

The Supreme Court issued a decision Friday in the Carpenter v. U.S. case. The Court’s decision means that a warrant must now be obtained before being able to access cell site location information which is very similar, if not more accurate, than the Global Positioning System (GPS). This is a big victory for the American people and for privacy rights.

Getting Rid of Comey Is Only the Start

Today, President Trump announced his choice for the new leader of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). While his choice of candidate has generally been well received by commentators on both side of the isle it is unlikely he will implement the needed reforms to the FBI. While Jim Comey and the FBI have been grabbing headlines over the past year, few pundits, or politicians are seriously talking about the true threat surrounding the national police force.

From My Cold Dead Keyboard

The global community has been rocked by tragedy after tragedy over the last several weeks, but few instances have captured the international spotlight as readily as the recent attacks in London . The international community was quick to offer their support to the beleaguered Britain, but a troubling response came from that nation's own leader.

The Email Privacy Act Passes in House, Next Stop: Senate

Two years after the Email Privacy Act (H.R. 387) was first introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives, it was revisited Monday, Febuary 6th, and passed unanimously. This is a huge victory for proponents of digital privacy, but the fight is not over quite yet. Now that is has been passed in the House, it will need to be passed by the Senate before Americans’ right to email privacy can finally be updated for the 21st century.

Ruling Celebrated as Fourth Amendment Victory Leaves Unanswered Questions

A federal judge in New York ruled for the first time on Tuesday that the use of a surveillance device to capture cell phone location information constitutes a warrantless search. In the case, Lambis v. United States, government officials used a stingray device to track a drug suspect. Stingrays, also known as “cell site simulators,” force cell phones in the area to transmit signals that pinpoint the user’s location through cell site location information, or CSLI data.

Starve the Bureaucratic Beast: Support A Pure Leahy-Lee Amendment

The last time legislators updated the Electronic Communication Privacy Act (ECPA) was when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was a toddler. With new technological innovation and new privacy concerns, Congress must cooperate to bring the laws into the 21st Century. Reforming the ECPA is necessary to guarantee our Constitutional protection against warrantless digital searches and seizures. The answer is the Leahy Lee-Amendment.
