FBI Curtails GPS Tracking

As a direct result of the January 23, 2012, ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that put limits on the use of GPS tracking by law enforcement pesonnel (see: GPS Tracking: Bad Guys 1, Good Guys 0), an unnamed source at the FBI has confirmed the ruling has had a major impact on the agency.  For more on this story as reported by USAToday, go here.

Comment: It will be interesting to see how many "closed" cases get reviewed for possible appeal based on the Supreme Court ruling.  Given the indication above that the ruling has had significant impact on the FBI, it may be substantial.
