Submission + - Government has a right to read your email

gone.fishing writes: "A Lawsuit challenges government's right to read your e-mail. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting in this article: http://www.startribune.com/789/story/884388.html that a seller of "natural male enhancement" products sued after a fraud indictment based on evidence gleaned from his electronic mail. Federal prosecutors say they don't need a search warrant to read your e-mail messages if those messages happen to be stored in someone else's computer.

Guess Bob's not smiling now."
