New York Post Quotes Andrew Lustigman on Restriction of Privacy for Facebook Users

April 6, 2017

Andrew Lustigman, head of Olshan’s Advertising, Marketing & Promotions Practice Group, was quoted in the New York Post on a recent decision by the New York Court of Appeals to grant law enforcement access to users’ Facebook accounts. The Court’s decision dictates that only users themselves, not Facebook, are entitled to challenge search warrants for their Facebook accounts in criminal proceedings. Sensing the decision’s significance to online privacy, Facebook has hinted at the prospect of trying to have the case heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, a possibility on which Mr. Lustigman was quoted as saying, “These issues are important for social media platforms and their users, so I would expect that a certiorari petition by Facebook would be given serious consideration.”
