News: Obama administration - GPS trackers use without warrant OK

pocketgpsworld.com
The use of GPS trackers in the US has hit the headlines on a number of occasions in recent years.

There were numerous stories about people discovering GPS trackers on their cars (see one example here). This caused a storm of concern about how widespread was their use. Tech site iFixit even got hold of one and did a teardown of it (see here).

Then, in Jan 2012, the Supreme Court ruled that the use of GPS trackers by law enforcement violated the Fourth Amendment which protects against unreasonable search and seizure. Before using them the court that a warrant was required.

But now it appears that the Obama administration think otherwise. They're set to take the case before an appeals court to test the decision.
