News notes from around the interweb:
- The US has charged 4 Chinese military officers for the Equifax data breach don’t let that distract you from Equifax’s own culpability, when they leave their servers unprotected should accessing them even be a crime? The fault here still lies exclusively with Equifax.
- What went wrong with Bombardier? Everything
- American’s new Gol codeshares begin mid-February
- Constitutionality of Coronavirus quarantines
There is no direct Supreme Court precedent on the due process rights of a person subject to quarantine or isolation, but there is state precedent that the constitutional requirement is provided by the writ of habeas corpus. There is state precedent that isolation or quarantine cannot be indefinite without triggering a periodic right to review of the need for the restriction, which is consistent with Supreme Court precedent on restrictions for mental health commitment and the restrictions for dangerous persons such as sexual predators. While some states have granted more extensive due process rights through statute, it is likely that the Supreme Court would not find these necessary as a US constitutional matter under the Matthews v. Eldridge (1976) test.
