Submission + - FBI Secret Tracking Tech on Trial (

SeeSp0tRun writes: An Arizona court has agreed to determine whether or not technology can be withheld when applying for a court order or a warrant. In specific, the FBI's Stingray cell phone tracking device is coming under fire for constitutionality purposes.
From the article:
"The judge then asked how an order or warrant could have been obtained without telling the judge what technology was being used. Battista said, "It was a standard practice, your honor." Unsatisfied, Judge Campbell stated that it "can be litigated whether those orders were appropriate."
This is a major case for those concerned about warrantless tracking.
