U.S. Supreme Court asked to Review Ruling on GPS Surveillance

By: Wallin & Klarich

The United States Supreme Court, the highest court in the land, is being asked to decide once and for all whether police can be allowed to surveillance individuals via GPS tracking devices without a warrant.
Up until this point, there has been disagreement among the federal courts about whether such police practice could be permitted. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which includes California, authorized the use of warrantless GPS tracking while other courts such as the D.C. Circuit ruled it to be unconstitutional.
Government lawyers state that “prompt resolution of this conflict is critically important to law enforcement efforts throughout the United States.”
If the U.S. Supreme Court chooses to decide on the matter, it could determine whether police will have the power to track every movement of any given individual for any reason.
