Big Brother is watching. And their power to search you without a warrant may have just gotten broader.
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals held last week that a challenge to the government’s power to review your private emails without a warrant was not ready to be considered. But, if the Court does not re-address the issues raised, this could be a major blow to civil liberties and your constitutional rights. In this case, the government argued that it is entitled to search private email accounts if it believes there is criminal activity afoot. The government is required to get a warrant within 90 days after the search, which, by the way, it failed to do here.
