The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments tomorrow in a case involving law enforcement and GPS (global positioning system) surveillance.  At issue is whether GPS surveillance violates an individual’s reasonable expectation of privacy under the Fourth Amendment and whether law enforcement can install a GPS monitoring system in a person’s vehicle without a warrant.

Law enforcement and government lawyers believe that there is no expectation of privacy when someone travels on a public road.

Privacy advocates argue that law enforcement officials cannot use high tech gadgets to trump the Fourth Amendment’s right to a reasonable expectation of privacy

The case is Jones v. U.S.
