The Michigan Supreme Court won't intervene in an Oakland County case of a man charged with getting access to his estranged wife's email. Leon Walker was charged with a computer crime after his then-wife accused him of going through her email after he suspected infidelity.
In an order last week, the Supreme Court said it wouldn't step in before Walker's trial. Justice Marilyn Kelly wanted to hear the appeal, saying she doubts the hacking law was aimed at a case such as Walker's.
Justices Robert Young Jr. and Stephen Markman urged lawmakers to revisit the hacking law. They say it seems to cover an "extremely broad range of conduct."
