Ars Technica has done a roundup of Supreme Court justice nominee Neil Gorsuch's privacy rulings and subsequent legal attitudes, finding that in an August 2016 decision, "Gorsuch ruled in favor of e-mail privacy." The case revolved around the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and its opening of "e-mails sent to it by ISPs whose filters detected child pornography," and whether it was a Fourth Amendment search. Gorsuch called the move one that "pretty clearly [qualified] as exactly the type of trespass to chattels that the framers sought to prevent when they adopted the Fourth Amendment." Additionally, Gorsuch affirmed in a March 2016 dissent that a "'knock and talk' violated the Fourth Amendment when a defendant had a 'no trespassing' sign on the door," the report states.
