“Judge delays sentencing over cell phone privacy issue: U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June on cell tracking” via WTMZ-TV News

This article talks about a judge’s decision to reanalyze a robbery case in light of the Supreme Courts ruling on cell phone tracking in June, 2018. 

The defendant was located using “cell-site records for any wireless, internet-enable device connected to the college’s wireless network.” The school has 1,300 antenna which can be used to track a student’s location as they move around campus.

The judge originally rules that because the “Moravian College student handbook make it clear that any connections made to the campus wireless network are subject to inspection by the school at any time,” the tracking evidence would be allowed.

This NPR article details the Supreme Court ruling, which requires police to obtain a warrant to track a person using location data from a cellular device.
