Elsewhere in the Courts: Privacy

A New Jersey appeals court has ruled that e-mails between an employee and her attorney that were sent through the employee’s private e-mail account are privileged. The court ruled that the privilege holds even though the employee sent the e-mails from work over her employer’s computer network. The court ruled that the company’s electronic communications policy did not mean that the employee’s private e-mails became the company’s property. (Stengart v. Loving Care Agency, Superior Court of New Jersey, No. A-3506-08T1, 2009)
