With our rights eroding bit-by-bit the SCOTUS got a privacy decision right.
The Supreme Court on Monday put the brakes on the government’s use of high-tech monitoring devices to track motorists, ruling unanimously that police and the FBI violated the 4th Amendment by attaching a GPS device to a Jeep owned by a drug suspect.
Damn - and a unanimous decision at that! They were only split on the extent:
Under Alito’s approach, police would need a search warrant for any use of a tracking device, whether or not it was attached to the car. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen G. Breyer and Elena Kagan joined his opinion.
The others were, apparently, only talking vehicles.
