4th Amendment Video

In the video below, you will find the fourth amendment prevailing in a court dispute. The dispute involves email privacy and a man named Steven Warshak. Steven Warshak, supplement peddler for Enzyte, won his case against the Federal Trade Commission, who searched his private emails. The judges unanimously ruled that the Fourth Amendment protections apply for email, just as any other form of private communication. I can relate to this because I think that emails should be private and if needed to be searched there must be probable cause and some type of search warrant. I am glad that Steven Warshak won this case because his emails are his property and the proper procedures for searching someone's property was not taken.
