(legal term) Responsible for updating the 2001 edition of Searching and Seizing Computers and Obtaining Electronic Evidence in Criminal Investigations. Besides discussing recent case law relating to computer crime, the latter incorporates important changes (primarily in Chapters 3 and 4) made to U.S. laws governing electronic evidence gathering by the controversial USA PATRIOT Act of 2001. Though the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 provisions were to sunset on December 31, 2005, they were extended by 1 month. On March, 9 2006, the newly titled USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005 became law. Title I of the act repealed the sunset date for (thus making permanent) the surveillance provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act.
