City of Ontario v. Quon

EFF urged the United States Supreme Court to ensure that modern communications methods such as text messages retain the constitutional privacy protections applied to earlier technologies in an amicus brief filed in City of Ontario v. Quon.

EFF was joined on this brief by the America Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) and Public Citizen.

Below are some selected documents from the history of this case.
