State v. Reid
New Jersey Supreme Court
945 A.2d 26 (2008)
Shirley Reid (defendant), a New Jersey citizen, allegedly logged into the Internet to change one of her employer’s supplier’s passwords and shipping information to a nonexistent address. The supplier’s website captured Reid’s Internet address, and the supplier told the employer what Reid had done. The employer reported Reid to the police, and the police issued a deficient subpoena to the Internet service provider. The provider revealed that the Internet address was assigned to Reid and provided Reid’s subscriber information to police. Reid was charged with computer theft. Reid moved to suppress the evidence, arguing that she had a reasonable expectation of privacy in her Internet address and subscriber information and that the subpoena was defective. The trial court ruled in Reid’s favor, and the government appealed to the New Jersey Supreme Court.
