Ken Rosenfeld represented Arturo Ramirez, who posted to Facebook during the course of the Killa Mobb trial that it was “boring.” Facebook cited a 1986 law that protects Americans’ electronic communications and refused to turn over Ramirez’s information.
“The implications of this issue reach far beyond the privacy protections for a juror who fulfilled his civic duty,” said Rosenfeld in a statement. “Anyone who uses social media or any other type of electronic communication should be worried about how their right to privacy is viewed by the courts and media giants like Facebook.”
California Criminal Defense Attorney Ken Rosenfeld indicated that his client, Ramirez, will not grant permission at the hearing scheduled for February 25th. Ken Rosenfeld intended on appealing to the 3rd District Court of Appeals.
“I am troubled by the judges’ order. My client will not waive his right to privacy just because a judge orders him to do so,” said Ken Rosenfeld in a statement. “The Constitution protects citizens from coercive searches based upon manufactured consent.”
