IRS attorneys have asserted in internal documents that the Fourth Amendment does not protect email and that a warrant is not needed to plant a GPS location tracker on a car in its owner's driveway.
"So does the IRS always get a warrant? Unfortunately, while the documents we have obtained do not answer this question point blank, they suggest otherwise," he added.
"The key question our [document] request seeks to answer is whether the IRS's policy changed after Warshak, which should have put the agency on notice that the Fourth Amendment does in fact protect the contents of emails," said ACLU staff attorney Nathan Freed Wessler.
