N.J. Wants Warrantless Access to Phone Customers' Billing Records

, New Jersey Law Journal


The New Jersey Attorney General's Office is asking county prosecutors statewide for their help in overturning a 32-year-old state Supreme Court precedent that requires a warrant to obtain telephone billing records.

    What concerns me and many New Jersey residents I‘ve spoken to about this is how does Assistant Attorney General Ronald Susswein know that the NJ Supreme Court court "might be ready to overturn its holding, in State v. Hunt, 91 N.J. 338 (1982), that the warrantless search and seizure of telephone billing records ... violates ... the state constitution"?

    Has he been having ex parte communications with the Supreme Court Justices?

    Ex parte communications in NJ courts, especially the Family Courts, is a serious problem.

    I have been a divorce reform, children‘s rights, and fathers‘ rights activist for over 30 years. I have hundreds of members telling me of ex parte communications horrors where their cases have been manipulated and even destroyed by ex parte communications that they found out about after the fact. We have proof of ex parte communications in many cases, involving e-mails, letters, and texts to judges.

    The NJLJ needs to do an expose‘ on this with the ultimate goal of passing legislation (not court rules) to curb ex parte communications by making it a felony crime.

    Based on Susswein‘s paranoia, I hear a couple of chilling words: Welcome to New Jersey--the Police State. Sieg Heil!!!!!!!!!!
