Opinion by the Massachusetts Supreme Court concluding that the imposition of global positioning system (GPS) monitoring as a condition of the defendant's probation following a conviction of rape constituted an unreasonable search in violation of art. 14 of the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights.
Seventh Circuit opinion affirming district court's denial of a preliminary injunction and concluding that plaintiffs were not likely to succeed on the merits of their Fourth Amendment claim because, under the totality of the circumstances, lifetime GPS monitoring of purported class of individuals convicted of repeat sex offenses against children is not an unreasonable search.
North Carolina Court of Appeals opinion concluding that lifetime Satellite Based Monitoring ("SBM") of Defendant was not an unreasonable search in violation of the Fourth Amendment after balancing the state's interest in "preventing and prosecuting future crimes", Defendant's "diminished expectation of privacy both during and after any period of post-release supervision," and the "limited intrusion" caused by lifetime SBM.
North Carolina Supreme Court opinion holding that lifetime Satellite Based Monitoring is reasonable and permissible under the Fourth Amendment because it promotes a legitimate and compelling governmental interest that outweighs the program's "narrow, tailored intrusion" into defendant's expectation of privacy.
