4th Circuit SpotlightWhen an employee has been fired for sexual harassment, what degree of proof is required to show that the employer’s true motivation was discriminatory? And is a single click on the internet enough to justify a warrant to search a person’s home?

The Fourth Circuit rulings have implications for employers, law enforcement agencies, and really anyone who uses the internet.
