Missouri Amends State Constitution to Add Protection for Electronic Communication

LaptopDigital asset protection is a growing concern for individuals and planners. Last week, Missouri amended their state constitution to expressly protect “electronic communications and data” from search and seizure the same as other property. However, it is still unclear what the implications of this constitutional addition will be.

See Eugene Volokh, Missouri Voters Amend Constitution to Expressly Protect “Electronic Communications and Data”, The Washington Post, Aug. 6, 2014.
