LEGAL ANALYSIS: Why Mueller’s Seizure of Transition Emails Likely Violated the Law
by Robert Barnes | 5:38 pm, December 18th, 2017

*** begin quote ***

First, whether the government or company maintains a policy banning personal use.

Second, whether the government or employer monitors the use of the email.

Third, whether third parties have a right of access to the emails beyond technical audits and maintenance.

Fourth, whether the government or employer notifies the individual of the limits on privacy in the emails, whether the individual was aware of those policies, the use of those policies, and the monitoring of those policies. It boils down to whether a person in the individual’s shoes would have had no reasonable expectation of privacy in their email communications.

A fifth factor is relevant in the Fourth Amendment context: whether the government gave an individual notice and the individual had knowledge of the right to refuse to give consent to the future search of their emails.

Sounds like a lawyer, who should have known better, exceeded his authority.

Does that throw throw the whole result in the rubbish bin?
