Local divorce attorney: Infidelity hard to define in digital age

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Both the city of Indianapolis and the state of Indiana are investigating after government employees turned up on the list of the Ashley Madison users.

Thirty-three million email addresses have been posted online by hackers who are trying to shut down the website.

Eight of them came from the Indy.gov addresses used at the City County Building.

City policies permit limited personal use of email addresses, so something like this could be a violation.

The city says it’s too early to tell.

In the meantime, 24;Hour News 8 sat down with a divorce attorney who says, legally speaking, infidelity is hard to define in this digital age.

“Internet security, internet liability — the whole internet age has ushered in a completely specialized and hyper-technical area of law from the copyright and patent arena to the actual liabilities side where it’s very specialized, very complicated,” said attorney Bryan Ciyou.

It’s not clear what possible punishment may involve or how long the investigation may take.
