Submission + - US Supreme Court weighs on on Warrantless GPS Trac (nytimes.com)

asylumx writes: We've been following this story on Slashdot for a while now, well the US Supreme Court on Monday ruled unanimously that the police violated the Constitution when they placed a Global Positioning System tracking device on a suspect’s car and monitored its movements for 28 days. While the vote that the tracking was illegal is unanimous, there is some disagreement whether it simply constitutes a search (which should require a warrant under the 4th amendment) or if it was a breach of reasonable expectation of privacy. The latter seems to imply that GPS Tracking without a warrant is sometimes legal.
