The U.S. Supreme Court has granted cert in U.S. v. Jones, a case that I recently opined was decided correctly even if the logic that supported the decision was questionable. Now the High Nine will decide whether the government, without consent or a warrant, is allowed to (1) stick tracking devices to our cars, (2) monitor our every move over a “prolonged” period of time, and (3) randomly check our rectal temperatures.
(1) and (3) were not addressed by the D.C. Circuit, but the Supremes added them in for their consideration. (I’m pretty curious as to how Obama’s DOJ will justify that last one.)
More to come . . .
CORRECTION: Apparently the third issue I mentioned is not yet being considered by the court.
