Government employers in Western Virginia monitoring employees computer use

The Roanoke Times has this article on the efforts of local government in Western Virginia to monitor the computer use of their employees.

In the Urofsky case, the en banc Fourth Circuit held in a 8-4 decision that "that the regulation of state employees' access to sexually explicit material, in their capacity as employees, on computers owned or leased by the state is consistent with the First
Amendment," a holding which would apply equally to local government employees.
