Seventh Circuit Affirms City’s Right to Collect Resident Energy-Consumption Data Every 15 Minutes

August 29, 2018 by Reena R. Bajowala, Partner
On August 16, 2018, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeal issued Naperville Smart Meter Awareness v. City of Naperville, No. 16-3766 (slip op.), finding the City of Naperville’s mandatory “smart meter” program was not an unreasonable search under the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The City of Naperville owns and operates the public utility that provides electricity to the city’s residents. The utility collects and retains residents’ energy-consumption data at 15-minute intervals for up to three years. Traditional analog energy meters typically collect monthly energy consumption in a single lump figure once a month. Notably, a resident cannot opt-out of Naperville’s smart meter program. The Court analyzed whether the data collection constituted a “search.”

Q&A with Elizabeth Timme - Division Chair for the Women and the Law Division of the Indianapolis Bar Association

June 19, 2018
Q: Why did you join the Women and the Law Division (WLD) of the Indianapolis Bar Association, and how long have you been involved with the organization?
 
A: I’ve been involved with the WLD since 2013. I initially joined, because I wanted to get more involved in the Indianapolis legal community as a post-law school, Indiana transplant. I stayed and got involved in WLD leadership, because it’s inspiring and fun to be a part of a group of engaged, motivated, smart people working hard (and often under the radar) to create opportunities for other women in our community.
