Court OKs Cell Phone Tracking Without Warrant

Article Comments  100+

A US District Court in New York has granted the government permission to track suspects by their cell phones for up to 60 days without a warrant. According to the ruling, law enforcement officers can ask a carrier for a record of what tower a user makes calls from during that period as well as a map of all tower locations. This court order does not include requests for e911-derived aGPS or triangulated locations, which are far more accurate. In this case most carriers will only be able to locate a suspect somewhere inside a large circle around a tower, although one unnamed carrier will be able to further narrow the position to one of three 120 degree sectors.
