Electronic Privacy:

Civil Liberties V. Law Enforcement

February 25, 2013

Sponsored by The Brennan Center in partnership with the John Brademas Center for the Study of Congress, this event will host experts to discuss electronic privacy, focusing on government access to e-mail and other stored third party records. The Warshak decision has played a critical role in the debate over whether a probable cause warrant should be required. Please join us for a conversation about this issue, and in particular, the role of the judiciary in determining the balance between civil liberties and law enforcement in an age of heightened concern over national security and new technologies that have rapidly outpaced statutory safeguards.


  • The Honorable Danny Julian Boggs, United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit
  • David Lieber, Privacy Policy Counsel, Google
  • Additional panelists to be confirmed.

Moderated By

  • Faiza Patel, Co-Director, Liberty & National Security Program, Brennan Center for Justice
