Justices rule in favor of California police chief who read employee's texts

Justices rule in favor of California police chief who read employee's texts --The Supreme Court says the Ontario employer's perusal of an officer's sexually explicit messages, sent on his work pager, is justified and didn't violate the 4th Amendment. 17 Jun 2010 In its first ruling on the rights of employees who send messages on the job, the Supreme Court rejected a broad right of privacy for workers Thursday and said supervisors may read through an employee's text messages if they suspected that work rules were being violated. In a 9-0 ruling, the justices said a police chief in Ontario, Calif., did not violate the constitutional rights of an officer when he read the transcripts of sexually explicit text messages sent from the officer's pager.
