On October 15, 2004, Kenneth Sodomsky took his computer to a Circuit City store in Pennsylvania. A store technician, while working on the computer, saw files that “appeared to be pornographic in nature”. The police were called, the computer was seized, and Mr. Sodomsky was arrested.The trial court suppressed the search of the computer. An appeal was filed to the Pennsylvania Superior Court.The Superior Court said that Mr. Sodomsky gave Circuit City technicians access to the hard drive and that the technicians at Circuit City were testing the computer in a “commercially accepted manner.”The appeals court in December reversed the trial court’s suppression order and sent the case back for trial.In short, the Superior Court ruled that there was no expectation of privacy in the computer once it was left at the store to be worked on by the technicians. “If a person is aware of, or freely grants to a third party, potential access to his computer contents, he has knowingly exposed the contents of his computer to the public and has lost any reasonable expectation of privacy in those contents.” On December 19th, 2007, Mr. Sodomsky asked for reconsideration of the Superior Court decision.  No word as to whether reconsideration will be granted.
