Zwillinger Quoted Regarding Judge’s Ruling on Notice in E-Mail Search Warrant Dispute
Yesterday, Marc Zwillinger was quoted by Mike Scarcella in the Blog of the LegalTimes with regard to a recent ruling by Judge Royce Lamberth of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The Court ruled that under the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the government is not required to notify the email subscriber when it serves an Internet Service Provider with a warrant to search email account contents. Marc Zwillinger stated that this ruling is in accordance with the DOJ’s position as well as past precedent, but that privacy advocates are currently seeking reform in which email users would receive notice after a warrant is issued for their email.
