Warrant would be needed to read emails, according to bill passec by Senate Judiciary CommitteeThe Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday passed a bipartisan measure that would force U.S. law enforcement and government agencies to get a warrant before reading citizen emails.ECPA currently allows the U.S. government to access email older than six months old or if they had been marked as "read" or opened, with a subpoena signed by a federal prosecutor. Only email less than six months old requires a warrant signed by a judge. But the amendment, jointly written by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), will require the government to inform a U.S. resident when their email has been disclosed via a search warrant.
