Join Wasserstein Fellow Brian Hauss for a discussion about his work with the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy & Technology Project.

Brian will discuss three recent or ongoing ACLU cases: (1) Merchant v. Mayorkas (challenging warrantless searches of electronic devices at the international border); (2) ACLU v. Clearview AI (challenging Clearview AI's unconsented collection of biometric identifiers for use in surveillance technologies); (3) Arkansas Times v.
