Submission + - Supreme Court Takes Texting Privacy Case (nytimes.com)

TaggartAleslayer writes: The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to decide whether a police department violated the constitutional privacy rights of an employee when it inspected personal text messages sent and received on a government pager.

The case opens a new frontier in Fourth Amendment jurisprudence, according to a three-judge panel of an appeals court that ruled in favor of the employee, a police sergeant on the Ontario, Calif., SWAT team.
