NY4: CSLI obtained by exigency mere third party information not subject to suppression

Police discovered defendant may have been involved in a quadruple homicide, and they submitted an exigent circumstances request for his CSLI for the four days around the homicide, and that put him there. His motion to suppress the CSLI was denied because it was third party information in which he had no reasonable expectation of privacy. It is not like realtime tracking or searching a cell phone. See People v. Jiles, 2017 NY Slip Op 08944, 2017 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 9004 (4th Dept. Dec. 22, 2017). People v. Taylor, 2018 NY Slip Op 00709, 2018 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 782 (4th Dept. Feb. 2, 2018).
