Ars Technica reports on U.S. Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh's third day of confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee. In response to a series of questions from Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., Kavanaugh said, "I've talked repeatedly in this hearing about how technology will be one of the huge issues with the Fourth Amendment going forward." The back and forth between the two examined opinions from the 2015 Klayman v. Obama case, the impact of Carpenter v. United States, and a 2012 Supreme Court case, United States v. Jones, to ascertain views on surveillance, data protection and privacy. Editor's Note: April Doss, CIPP/US, recently reported on what Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS nomination would mean for privacy in an article for Privacy Perspectives.
