We the People Podcast: Erin Murphy on Genetic Privacy
Erin E. Murphy of NYU Law School sat down with Jeffrey Rosen of the National Constitution Center in a new episode of We the People. Professor Murphy discusses the rising issue of genetic privacy in connection to the latest updates in the Golden State Killer case.
This past April, California police announced they had a suspect for the “Golden State Killer” – 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo. Using a new method, the police gathered genetic data from old crime scene samples and uploaded the information into a genealogy website, GEDmatch, which enabled them to identify DeAngelo’s relatives, and eventually narrow the pool down to find DeAngelo himself. Professor Murphy explores how this case, and others, have opened a Pandora’s Box of questions concerning privacy laws, leading many to wonder what the future for genetic privacy will look like under the Fourth Amendment.
