Cell Tracking Hearing on Friday
On Friday, a federal appeals court will hear arguments in a case that could establish new standards for locating wireless devices like cell phones. The government will argue that citizens enjoy no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in their device’s location. In short “a customer’s Fourth Amendment rights are not violated when the phone company reveals to the government its own records” related to phone location. The ACLU and EFF will argue on the other side.
