The Obama Administration will present its arguments for warrantless GPS tracking before a federal appeals court today, despite a Supreme Court ruling last year that a warrant is needed to attach a GPS device to a suspected criminal’s vehicle, CNET reports.
According to Wired, the government believes that the high court’s ruling does not account for all scenarios, and in many cases, exemptions exist in which a judge would not need to sign a warrant to monitor someone, including with issues at the border and with school students and probationers.
The Supreme Court’s unanimous decision last year ruled that the Fourth Amendment protection of “persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures” would be violated if law enforcement agencies were allowed to attack GPS locations to vehicles without obtaining a warrant.
