  • Court ruling in child-porn case stirs privacy fears

    San Francisco Chronicle - 07/05/2016

    A court decision last month that permitted federal prosecutors to use evidence obtained through government hacking in a child pornography case has stirred fears about privacy.

    “This is the opinion of one court judge,” said Andrea Matwyshyn, a law professor at Northeastern University. “Other courts will, at best, find this to be data. It is information about the way that one court ruled in a particular set of facts. And other courts may choose not to analyze similar facts.”
