Private E-mail

Private E-mail

"N.J. Supreme Court upholds privacy of personal e-mails accessed at work"

This is something of concern for Grant and myself.  We tend to do an extensive amount of communication with our clients via e-mail.  Primarily coordinating schedules to meet in person to discuss the more sensitive factors of a case, but still... if our clients access their e-mail (even wonderful gmail) from work, their employers can get access to those e-mails.

It was good to hear that the New Jersey courts have ruled that the company should not read these e-mails.  Ruling from the case:

A company should not have read e-mails a former employee wrote to her lawyer from a private, password-protected web account, even though she sent them from her employer's computer.

Thank you,

Interesting, I use my private e-mails from work also. I don't think our company has adressed that issue yet. I suppose it will be comming down the pipeline. They do have a policy on company e-mails.
