Judges to rule on digital snooping

Author: JT Smith

PC World reports "Some of the nation's top judges, who set policy for the federal courts, are gearing to
take a stand on whether judges and other court employees should have their PCs and Internet use monitored
at work.

The issue is being raised at the twice-annual Judicial Conference here this week. The judges' decision could
affect snooping practices for other government employees and, perhaps, workers in general." Interesting how quickly the judicial branch, which has traditionally ruled in favor or let stand workplace monitoring practices, changes its tune when its their privacy at stake.
