Privacy & Technology

The Fourth Amendment protects us from unreasonable searches and seizures, but rapidly advancing technological capabilities and outdated laws have nevertheless left Americans’ private lives vulnerable to government intrusion.

We work to defend privacy as it relates to medical information, the internet and social media, consumer information, and more. Here in Colorado, we’ve filed suit to safeguard taxpayer privacy, challenged school officials’ search of students’ text messages, and investigated the disclosure of private phone records to the National Security Agency. We also revealed the existence of the Denver Police Department’s Spy Files ‐ the monitoring and recording of the peaceful protest activities of Denver-area residents, and the file-keeping on the expressive activities of law-abiding advocacy organizations. In 2013, we successfully advocated for legislation that protects Coloradans’ personal social media passwords and credit history from employers.
