Last April, I was a guest faculty member at the , an outstanding writers’ colloquium
presented annually in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado. This area has been one of the areas worst hit in Colorado by forest fires because of the many thousands of acres of beautiful pine that encircle Colorado Springs. My thoughts are with the people there.
Today I’m sharing a few slides from one of my presentations that offered a high-level definition of “expectation of privacy.” Most people don’t value their expectation of privacy until a government agent (such as police, property inspectors, health inspectors) intrudes onto their property without authorization. Another area in which people don’t always value their expectation of privacy is in their personal computers. The founding fathers wanted people to be secure in their “homes and papers,” but no one has ever doubted that the Fourth Amendment expectation of privacy applies to individuals’ personal computers and other electronic devices.
What is expectation of privacy in a nutshell? It’s a zone of protection created by constitutional law against unreasonable searches and searches.
In a future blog, we’ll discuss this in more depth. Meanwhile, the below slides offer an introduction to this topic:
