Federal judge orders Pa. schools to stop laptop spying 

ACLU joins case as 'friend of the court,' claims schools violated students' 4th Amendment rights

 February 23, 2010 02:04 PM ET - Computerworld - A federal judge yesterday ordered the Pennsylvania school district accused of spying on its students to stop activating the cameras in school-issued MacBook laptops.

 Earlier in the day, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) had asked the same court to let the organization file an amicus curiae, or "friend of the court," brief in support of the 16-year-old high school student's demand that his school be barred from turning on the cameras.

 Yesterday, U.S. District Court Judge Jan DuBois issued a consent order that prevents Lower Merion School District of Ardmore, Pa., from "remotely activating any and all web cams embedded in lap top [sic] computers issued to students ... or from remotely taking screenshots of such computers."
