The Supreme Court heard oral argument on City of Ontario v. Quon, a case before the Supreme Court out of the Ninth Circuit that we reported on last month.  The transcript of the oral argument is available here.  A decision will come this summer.

Now, following oral argument, observers are predicting that the City will win.  If that is the outcome, it will be another step in the increasing shift away from public employee protections from searches by their employers.  We’ll continue to keep an eye on the case.
