THE DEFENSE NEVER RESTS
YOUR EMAILS ARE AN OPEN BOOK
Electronic Frontier Foundation reports that a Sixth Circuit case has found the governments current ability to access your emails older than 180 days without a warrant unconstitutional. The court found ones emails is similar or is the exact same thing as ones 'papers and effects'. Courts lag in keeping pace with technology as this is quite obvious. The article by EFF can be found here:
This is good news if you live in Tennessee, Ohio, Kentucky or Michigan. If you dont live in these states your Circuit can either follow the Sixth Circuit decision or depart and continue allowing the government to violate your privacy. Your emails can be read without a warrant.
Keep in mind that
evidence retrieved for court is different than evidence retrieved for other
purposes. Evidence retrieved for court must have the supporting documents in
dotted i and crossed t form. Evidence which law enforcement have no
intention in presenting falls under no scrutiny.
