The case of the Craiglist Killer has lived on through digital forensics. The Boston Police released their case files in the Craigslist Killer case to the Boston Phoenix which then published a remarkable story about the investigation in April of 2012. Digital Detectives co-hosts, Sharon D. Nelson, Esq., President of Sensei Enterprises, Inc., and John W. Simek, Vice President of Sensei Enterprises, explore the intricacies of this captivating case including: evidence from surveillance cameras and privacy implications, getting social media evidence and poaching wireless networks.
As smartphones and GPS devices become increasingly sophisticated, your every move can be tracked and your every communication read by law enforcement. On the July edition of Law Technology Now, host Monica Bay talks with consultant Joshua Engel, the “Fourth Amendment Guru” of the EDD Update blog, about privacy issues, and the U.S. Supreme Court’s announcement that it will hear a controversial case involving police planting a GPS device on the car of a suspected criminal.

In the US vs. Pineda-Moreno decision, the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that Law enforcement agents can legally place a GPS device on an individual’s car without their knowledge and without a warrant from a judge. Attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams, welcome Orin S. Kerr, contributing blogger to the Volokh Conspiracy and Professor of Law at the George Washington University Law School, to discuss the legality of GPS tracking in light of the Fourth Amendment, privacy rights, the role of technology and the possibility that this case and others like it will reach the Supreme Court.
