I guess the supreme court thinks that if you bring your personal computer to work, and hook it up to the network, you would have an expectation of privacy as long as you put a password on the computer. The final ruling is probably correct, but a violation of the 4th Amendment shouldn't have come into question. The final ruling said he had no intention of the contents remaining private because he didn't take precautions such as password protecting his computer. I think that by bringing his personal computer to work and connecting it to the network, he compromised his right to keep his files hidden. The argument is strengthened by the fact that his computer was causing problems for others.
