Mark Schamel will take part in a webinar titled “The New Fourth Amendment – Carpenter Changes the Rules” for members of the Association of Corporate Counsel’s Compliance and Ethics Network. The webinar discussion is scheduled for August 7.

The US Supreme Court’s much-anticipated opinion in Carpenter v. United States has established new Fourth Amendment privacy rights with respect to cell phone location data.  Seeing how “seismic shifts” in technology have altered our conceptions of privacy, the Court revised its long-held “reasonable expectation of privacy” test and ruled that police obtaining cell site location information records from a person’s cell phone service provider constitutes a Fourth Amendment “search” requiring a warrant.

In this ACC Compliance & Ethics Committee webinar, Schamel will interview Orin Kerr, the Frances R. and John J. Duggan Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. Professor Kerr is an expert on the Fourth Amendment and an authority on computer crime law.  A nationally known writer and commentator, Professor Kerr is regularly covered in the Washington Post, New York Times and on all of the major networks, as well as a regular contributor to the Volokh Conspiracy blog. Professor Kerr was a member of the Department of Justice Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS), as well as a former law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Womble Bond Dickinson is the long-time sponsor of the ACC’s Compliance and Ethics Network.
