This presentation discusses privacy rights under the Constitution and pitches a number of case hypotheticals to help the viewers question their views as to whether such should be protected privacy rights. First, where are privacy rights in the constitution? In the Bill of Rights, amends. 1-10, are speech, religion, several rights of the criminally accused, right to bear arms, due process, etc. But, do you see the word “privacy”? Some Justices say, privacy rights are just not there…at all. Now many of us likely don’t take that position…..However…we might be more willing to see (in the shadows or penumbras) the privacy rights we want, but not the ones others want. This presentation helps you consider what you think.
