9th Circuit Pushes Back on Obtaining Internet Information from Sex Offenders: Doe v. Harris

9th Circuit

Yesterday, the 9th Circuit issued a three judge panel opinion (Doe v. Harris) which struck down portions of Californians Against Sexual Exploitation (“CASE”) Act or Proposition 35. The panel found certain aspects of the CASE Act as applied to sex offenders, no longer under the jurisdiction of the court e.g., probation or parole, to be unconstitutional. Specifically, the panel struck down requiring registered sex offenders to provide law enforcement with all Internet names and addresses that they use in social media, instant messaging, and Web posts. This 9th Circuit panel decision follows in the footsteps of other federal courts that have struck down similar laws.
