user’s location that is in possession of a wireless carrier does not require a warrant for authorities to access. This new decision overturns a panel ruling that occurred last summer, which, for the first time in a court of its stature, ruled in favor of privacy regarding the hotly contested cell tower data. In this latest case, an opinion put forth by Judge Diana Gribbon Motz said that individuals don’t have a Fourth Amendment-backed right to privacy since the information is the hands of a third party. Once the information has been willfully given to a third party, it’s fair game.
Thanks. God bless.
