The Right of Privacy: What's left of it? Part 2

Last month I discussed both the Federal and State constitutional right to privacy. I pointed out that the Federal constitutional right to privacy is not explicitly stated in the constitution. The California State constitution however, does specifically provide for a right of privacy. This is a good thing. But good old Justice Lucas (may he rest in peace) in Hill v. NCAA (1994) 7 C.4th 1 came to the rescue of corporate interests and diluted our right to privacy.
