How Private R Ur Txt Msgs?
July 20, 2008

The National Law Journal, "Embattled Mayor Seeks Refuge in 'Texting' Case". Text messages led to criminal charges against the mayor of Detroit who is seeking to defend himself with a recent ruling on text message privacy handed down by the 9th U.S. CIrcuit Court of Appeals. Prof. Teri Dobbins told the Journal that she doesn't view the 9th circuit ruling as a prohibition of text-message auditing in the workplace, "I don't think employees should feel confident that no matter what they do that it will remain private because I don't think the opinion goes that far, by any means."
