Warrantless Cell Phone Tracking Ruled Unconstitutional

The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that warrantless cell phone tracking is unconstitutional.

The ruling does not block investigators from obtaining the records آ— which show which calls are routed through specific towers آ— but simply requires a higher legal showing of probable cause to obtain a search warrant rather than a less-strict court order.
