Eunice Park Published in OC Lawyer on Carpenter and the Fourth Amendment


Western State College of Law at Argosy University Professor Eunice Park has published “Protecting the Fourth Amendment After Carpenter in the Digital Age: What Gadget Next?” in the May issue of Orange County Lawyer magazine. The article notes the tension in the Supreme Court’s previous approaches to protecting personal information and observes that the decision in Carpenter v. United States, expected in June, will have significant repercussions for how lower courts will address other technology-based privacy challenges, including law enforcement’s use of cell-site simulators. In the meantime, the “reasonable expectation of privacy” paradigm appears to be a shifting one, as entire generations are growing up accustomed to sharing their whereabouts, activities and thoughts on social media.
