In Supreme Court Ruling Privacy Rights Lose Again WASHINGTON ( A P ) - The government has the right to seize or study the records of your bank account and you don't have a constitutional right to know that federal agents are doing so, the Supreme Court says., And in another privacy caso, Ihe court handed clown a decision that could mean .millions of government personnel and medical files will now be open to limited public scrutiny. In a 7 to 2 _ decision on Wednesday, the court said bank customers have no right to con-| test government subpoenas of their records because the records belong to the bank, A bank's customers, the justices said, have "no legitimate expectation of privacy" in bank transactions that naturally involve bank employes .who might tell the government what the records contain. Since the customer should not think his account is private, the court said, he has no right to expect that the bank or the government will tell him if his account records have been seized or examined, Justice Lewis F. Powell, writing the decision Tor the majority, said the hank's failure to notify the customer constitutes "a neglect without l e g a l consequences, - however, unattractive it may be." Checks, deposit- slips and other records tho Government requires banks to keep "are n o t confidential . communications but negotiable instruments- lo he used in commercial transactions," Powell wrote, He said the documents only contain information the customer has vpl* untarily allowed to be exposed lo banks and their employes. ' · "The depositor takes the risk, in revealing his affairs to an* other, that the information will be conveyed by that person to tho government," the majority decision said. ; The ruling reversed, a decision by the 5th U,S.
