*Please be aware that Michigan’s Attorney General is serious about interference with virtual/remote public meetings.
Attorney General Dana Nessel and Detroit U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider both have warned of potential video-teleconference hijacking and cybersecurity breaches as local governments, private companies and schools move meetings online as a result of Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-15. Any inappropriate behavior, disorder or malicious content (otherwise known as Zoombombing), including racial slurs and pornography posts can result in criminal charges, may be subject to prosecution under Michigan statutes prohibiting the malicious use of electronic communication and fraudulent access of a computer network.
Federal charges could include disrupting a public meeting, computer intrusion, using a computer to commit a crime, hate crimes, fraud, or transmitting threatening communications, according to the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. Transmitting threatening communications, for instance, is punishable by fines or up to five years in prison.
