Justices Allow Search of Work-Issued Pager

Justices Allow Search of Work-Issued Pager 18 Jun 2010 A California police department did not violate the constitutional privacy rights of an employee when it audited the text messages on a pager the city had issued him, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled on Thursday. The decision puts government employees on notice that electronic communications on devices provided to them may not be subject to the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable searches, as long as their employers have "a legitimate work-related purpose" in inspecting the communications.
