Win! Landmark Seventh Circuit Decision Says Fourth Amendment Applies to Smart Meter Data

The Seventh Circuit just handed down a landmark opinion, ruling 3-0 that the Fourth Amendment protects energy-consumption data collected by smart meters.

The court held that residents have a reasonable expectation of privacy in this data and that the government’s access of it constitutes a “search.”

The Human Cost of War for Afghan Children

War has had a terrible impact on children in Afghanistan. After almost two decades of United States development efforts, with the hopes of helping the war-weary country take a path to stability and self-reliance, little has changed on the ground for children growing up today in Afghanistan.
