CA9: Husband hacking wife’s work emails for divorce advantage violated SCA

Husband’s interception of his wife’s work emails for advantage in their divorce case violated the Stored Communications Act as well as her right of privacy. The district court erred in granting him summary judgment. Clare v. Clare, 19-36039 (9th Cir. Dec. 8, 2020)

Landlords sued over having to provide rental information to the City to justify rent increases. Summary by the court: “The panel noted that the complaint did not contain any factual allegations distinguishing the information at issue in this case from the similar information landlords already provide to the City in other contexts under regulations whose validity has not been challenged. Because plaintiffs had not plausibly alleged that the challenged provisions effected a search, their Fourth Amendment claim failed.” Hotop v. City of San Jose, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 38034 (9th Cir. Dec. 7, 2020).
