Abstract

The purpose of this article is to determine whether the increasing availability of new technologies, combined with persistent terrorist threats since September 11, 2001, weakened American citizens' Fourth Amendment rights. This will be accomplished by examining precedents established by the U.S. Supreme Court on Fourth Amendment protections, and contrasting it with the federal government's application of warrantless computer eavesdropping by using surveillance programs such as Project Echelon and Carnivore.
