Worker fired for disabling GPS app that tracked her 24 hours a day [Updated] | Ars Technica

by  David Kravets –  May 11, 2015 

A Central California woman claims she was fired after uninstalling an app that her employer required her to run constantly on her company issued iPhone–an app that tracked her every move 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Plaintiff Myrna Arias, a former Bakersfield sales executive for money transfer service Intermex, claims in a state court lawsuit that her boss, John Stubits, fired her shortly after she uninstalled the job-management Xora app that she and her colleagues were required to use. According to her suit (PDF) in Kern County Superior Court:

The Oyez Project at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law | A Multimedia Archive of the Supreme Court of the United States

Here’s an old friend, even  larger and improved, with additional resources:

U.S. Supreme Court Media

http://www.oyez.org/

The Oyez Project at Chicago-Kent is a phenomenal resource for anyone who wants to understand the workings of the United States Supreme Court. In fact, as multimedia archive, the site “aims to be a complete and authoritative source for all audio recorded in the Court since the installation of a recording system in October 1955.” The site can be scouted in a number of convenient ways. First, readers may simply explore the Latest Stories, which include Weekly Roundups, articles, and analyses of goings on at the Court. For more focused searches, readers may prefer to select Cases and Justices. The Cases tab navigates to every case that has been argued in the Supreme Court, along with a summary and, often, audio files of the oral arguments. The Justices section, on the other hand, provides summaries and rulings of every justice that has served on the Court. In addition, the excellent Tour function provides a DIY tour of the Supreme Court, complete with peaks into the Exterior, the Great Hall, the Courtroom, and the offices of select justices.

The Troubles, the 30-year sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland, divided neighborhoods, friendships, and even families. When the Good Friday Agreement was reached in 1998, there were several attempts to preserve these histories, which included interviews with republican and loyalist paramilitary members and were to be housed under a confidentiality agreement at Boston College’s Burns Library. But when the British government demanded access to the tapes in 2011, and the U.S. attorney general complied with a subpoena, controversy erupted. Should the tapes be held until interviewees died, as per the original agreement? Or should they be used to try paramilitary members for their actions during The Troubles? This site offers links to dozens of articles from around the web, as well as legal documents surrounding the case, radio interviews, and television specials from CNN, PBS, and the BBC. For educators teaching modern Irish history or for anyone interested in the ambiguities of international law or sectarian conflict and reconciliation, this site is a must read. [CNH]
