NOTE: The 2013 Legislature passed new statutes on search warrants to provide specific processes for GPS warrants. Modifications to other search warrant laws were also made.
In United States v. Antoine Jones, the Supreme Court unanimously restricted law enforcement’s ability to attach a GPS tracking device to a suspect’s vehicle to track their movements. In doing so, the Court rejected the government’s view that long-term surveillance of a suspect by GPS tracking is no different than traditional, low-tech forms of monitoring.
