Carpenter: How SCOTUS Defines Constitutional Privacy In The Digital Age

June 29 , 2018

The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) recently issued its ruling in cell phone privacy case, Carpenter v. U.S. Join the Congressional Internet Caucus Academy and State of the Net for a popup briefing on Friday, June 29, as a panel of Academy experts parses the Court’s decision and what it means for the future of privacy.

The Carpenter case could potentially transform our understanding of our Constitutional privacy rights. The panel will discuss questions like: what privacy rights should U.S. citizens maintain when they share their location and other data with Internet companies and cellphone carriers? Does law enforcement need a warrant to collect this data from these “third-parties?”

This is the first briefing of the Academy’s SCOTUS Tech series. SCOTUS Tech is a new series of panel discussions co-hosted by the Congressional Internet Caucus Academy and the State of the Net Series. SCOTUS Tech will bring together experts over a series of events to explore how the Supreme Court and appellate courts grapple with technology in the Internet age.

Those who are unable to attend in person can register here to view the livestream.
