Abstract

This Article argues that the Supreme Court's technology jurisprudence can be best understood as protecting the interest of elites. After providing an overview of the major technology cases from Olmstead to Kyllo, the Article focuses on the recent case of United States v Jones. The Article does not contend that the Court intended to protect elites, but instead posits that this motive likely operated at a more unconscious level because of the Justices' greater relative affluence and elevated social position.

Keywords: technology, Olmstead, Kyllo, Jones, elite
