No Legitimate Expectation

Blake Robbins should have known better.

So says the official who ran the Lower Merion School District’s controversial computer security system when it snapped Robbins’ picture in his home and led to his invasion-of-privacy suit against the district.

Even in his own home, the Harriton High School sophomore had “no legitimate expectation of privacy” from the camera on his school-issued laptop, information systems coordinator Carol Cafiero contended in a court filing on Tuesday.

The terrible crime that invalidated this student’s right to privacy was apparently breaking a couple of computers and failing to pay the insurance on his current one.
