Marchant moderates, speaks at judicial workshop
ASU Regents’ Professor
served as a moderator and speaker at the 2013 Ninth Circuit Federal Judicial Center Mid-Summer Workshop in San Diego on Tuesday, July 16.
Marchant moderated the “Searches and Privacy in the Computer Age” segment of the workshop, and gave a presentation titled, “Law Enforcement Searches on Social Media Sites.” In it, he explored the potential value of social media to prosecutors.
"Criminals are often sloppy or nondiscriminating in what they say on social media,” Marchant writes in his presentation. “This can demonstrate stages and progression of planning a crime.”
Marchant is the ASU Lincoln Professor of Emerging Technologies, Law and Ethics at the College of Law, and faculty director of the Center for Law, Science & Innovation. He frequently lectures about the intersection of law and science at national and international conferences. He has authored more than 60 articles and book chapters on various issues relating to emerging technologies.
