Last week I reported that the New York City Bar Association issued an ethics opinion holding that lawyers must take reasonable precautions to protect confidential information if the lawyer is searched by U.S border/customs agents.
In a related story, now comes news that the ACLU and the Electronic Frontier Foundation have sued the Department of Homeland Security to block U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel from searching travelers’ electronic devices without warrants.
