US Supreme Court Court Rules On GPS Tracking [sort of]

According to a post on Wired, the US Supreme Court has ruled that installation of a GPS tracking device is legal, but installation and use for an extended period of time (as yet undefined), MAY not be.  Good of them to have made such a clear and concise decision, before dismissing a drug-lord’s life sentence…

“We hold that the government’s installation of a GPS device on a target’s vehicle, and its use of that device to monitor the vehicle’s movements, constitutes a ‘search,” Justice Antonin Scalia wrote.  They declined to clarify whether that search was unreasonable and required a warrant.
