The case explores Fourth Amendment search and seizure rights in a case that was decided in favor of the officer by a judge at the lower level.

According to the report, the Ontario Police Department had a formal policy reserving the right to monitor "network activity including e-mail and Internet use," allowing "light personal communications" by employees but cautioning that they "should have no expectation of privacy."
