August 4, 2015 -- Professor Eugene Volokh’s comments regarding the use and reliability of polygraph exams is cited in a Bloomberg Business article.
“If there’s a bad use and a good use, then the speech is protected,” says Professor Eugene Volokh of UCLA School of law.
“It’s hard to really think through whether polygraphs are a good idea without having a sense of whether they’re easily defeatable. But once you get this one-on-one interaction with somebody whose purposes you know, then it stops being dual-use and becomes only single-use. This person is not going to be making policy about polygraph examinations—this guy wants to defraud somebody.”
