Cell Phones

NPR's Nina Totenberg reports on today's Supreme Court arguments in a cell phone privacy case. The case tests whether someone can sue if his cell phone call is eavesdropped on, and the information gathered is disclosed. The call in question was conducted by teachers union officials, who made some mention of blowing up the porches of school board members. The comments were tape recorded and later broadcast. In questioning the lawyers today, the justices seemed torn between the privacy of the caller and the public's right to the information.
