Feds Push For Warrantless Cell Phone Tracking

An anonymous reader writes “An article at CNET is reporting on the Obama administration’s push for warrantless tracking of the location of cell phones (Verizon Wireless stores location data for one year, for instance). The Justice Department says no warrant is necessary: ‘Because wireless carriers regularly generate and retain the records at issue, and because these records provide only a very general indication of a user’s whereabouts at certain times in the past, the requested cell-site records do not implicate a Fourth Amendment privacy interest.’”
