New Development in Location Privacy

This Washington Post article discusses a federal district court ruling last month, which apparently is the first to hold that the government must obtain a warrant based on probable cause of criminal activity before seeking location-based cell phone records.

According to an update to the article, two other district court rulings previously found that the government may obtain the data on a standard lower than probable cause.

The article goes on to say that the ruling could begin to establish the standard for such requests.
