NEW!Can You Hear Me Now? Cell Phones and the Fourth Amendment

Courts are recognizing more privacy rights regarding cell phones. Forty-year-old Fourth Amendment doctrines that had eroded privacy seem to be teetering on the edge of collapse. But the modern surveillance state is still trying to learn every last detail about our clients from their cell phone usage.

In this month’s video, Meghan Skelton, an Assistant Federal Public Defender from Maryland will bring you up to date on the status of the law. She is a 1995 graduate of the William and Mary Law School. She has clerked for the Virginia Supreme Court, worked for the Tax Division of the Department of Justice, been an associate in a Washington, D.C. law firm, and, since 2005, been an Assistant Federal Public Defender.

We’ve applied to The Florida Bar for CLE credit.
