It’s about time we started seeing court rulings in FAVOR of privacy!
Here’s hoping that we get to see some more of them.. maybe even start a
trend where courts move to protect people’s rights instead of squash ’em.

Court Rules for Student Web Privacy

A U.S. Court of Appeals ruling settled a seven-year battle over
student privacy rights on university computer networks, granting
privacy rights to students but guaranteeing administrators rights to
emergency action.

The case, decided on April 5, when an administrator at San Diego’s
Qualcomm Corporation discovered that someone had been hacking into the
company’s computer network. After tracing the hacker to a computer on
a network at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, the college’s
network investigator, Jeffrey Savoy, agreed to look into the issue.
