Supreme Court Takes Texting Case -

Supreme Court Takes Texting Case - NYTimes.comThere is texting and employers right to read the communications conveyed using their equipment and there is the constitutional 4th amendment that protects against illegal search and seizure. when is a law enforcement agency an employer and when is it a governmental emtity? The US Supreme Ct will be reviewing this case. They can reiterate the employers' right to monitor employees' communications on employer supplied devices no matter who they are, or create special rules for governmental employers. I suspect that one rule for employer actions across all entity types might work best. will be interesting...
