SCOTUS Rules Warrantless Phone Location Data Requests Illegal

7 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

In a five-to-four vote cast earlier today, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that most warrantless smartphone location data requests are illegal, throwing out a previous verdict from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals and providing digital privacy advocates with a major win. SCOTUS hence put an official end to Carpenter v. the U.S., a highly polarizing case that stems back from 2011 when one Timothy Carpenter was charged with a series of armed robberies performed in Ohio and Michigan in late 2010 and early 2011 based on handset location data the FBI obtained without a...

Supreme Court rules cops need warrant to obtain location data generated by your phone

7 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

The Supreme Court, by a 5-4 vote, ruled that police need a search warrant to obtain location data generated by a cellphone over a period of time. The ruling says that collecting this data from wireless providers without a warrant violates the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which guards against unreasonable search and seizure. Conservative Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the four liberals on the court to write the prevailing decision.
The ruling is limited to cell-site location data. Whether cops need a warrant to see the real time location of a criminal ...

In a 5-4 decision issued Friday, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that if the government wants to collect a suspect's cell-site location information -detailed, granular data that shows where a person is every few seconds-it needs a warrant to do so.

Supreme Court rules that police need warrants to get phone location info

7 monthes ago   |   By iMore

The decision was ruled in favor with a 5-4 vote.
The United States Supreme Court issued a ruling on June 22 stating that police must first get an official warrant before they can use cell tower data to track someone's location.
This ruling comes from the Carpenter v. United States case that dates back six years to 2011. Timothy Carpenter was arrested for a robbery in Detroit during that year, but only after police tracked down 12,898 locations of Carpenter over the course of 127 days. However, the police obtained all this data without any sort of warrant.
With the June 22 decision from the...
