Submission + - Judge Nixes Warrantless Cell Phone Loc Data (

poena.dare writes: The government sought warrantless access to 113 days of location data for a Verizon Wireless customer. On Monday, a judge refused the request, ruling that cell phone users have an expectation of privacy in location information. "There is no meaningful Fourth Amendment distinction between content and other forms of information, the disclosure of which to the Government would be equally intrusive and reveal information society values as private," said Judge Nicholas Garaufis. Privacy advocates in DC will be cheering as soon as they climb out from under their desks!
