Cellphone companies are objecting to proposed California legislation that would force them to publicly report the number of times they turn over cellphone location information to police and federal agents, arguing that it’s too burdensome, and would take time away from the important work of sharing customer data with cops “day and night.”
At issue is California’s SB 1434, a bill that would prohibit carriers from turning over locational data to police without a warrant.
With warrantless GPS tracking off the table, the federal government is turning to warrantless mobile phone tracking, and also saying the high court’s GPS ruling does not apply to warrantless phone tracking.
