+ - Court Upholds Privacy of Personal Emails at Work->

Submitted by chiguy
chiguy (522222) writes "New Jersey Supreme Court rules companies cannot read personal emails accessed through a company computer:

"Under all of the circumstances, we find that Stengart could reasonably expect that e-mails she exchanged with her attorney on her personal, password-protected, web-based e-mail account, accessed on a company laptop, would remain private," Chief Justice Stuart Rabner wrote in the decision, which upholds an appeals court's ruling last year.

"Stengart plainly took steps to protect the privacy of those e-mails and shield them from her employer," Rabner continued. "She used a personal, password protected e-mail account instead of her company e-mail address and did not save the account'(TM)s password on her computer.""
