Ars Technica: Cheese danish shipping, warrantless GPS trackers, and a border doctrine challenge BY Cyrus Farivar:
Judge to feds: No, you can’t warrantlessly put a GPS device on truck entering US.
. . .
Another attorney, Michael Price of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, told Ars that he wondered how far this legal argument might be extended in the government view. Could other trackers, or even malware, be implanted? “‘But I think the court gets it exactly right in its analysis,’ he emailed Ars. ‘And once the border search doctrine is no longer at play, I see this as a fairly straightforward application of Jones, especially with the focus on physical trespass to get around the relatively short length of monitoring. True, the opinion cites Carpenter, but only as the most recent endorsement of a long-recited principle about a warrant being generally required for searches.'”
