G.P.S. and Y-O-U

By Chris Daly

Phew! 

The Supreme Court (finally) got one right today. Ruling in a critical case that involves (among other things) your freedom to control who knows what about you, the Court said the police do not have the right to sneak into (or under) your car to plant a secret GPS device so they can track your every move, for as long as they want. It was a unanimous ruling, no less, which is a rarity these days.

Here is the ruling.

Here, for the record, is the Fourth Amendment (always worth brushing up on), plus the Wiki page.
