Appeals Court OKs Warrantless, Real-Time Mobile Phone Tracking | Threat Level | Wired.com

When it comes to an issue like this it is very important not to make an impulse decision that is strictly narrow minded.  One can look at this in a couple of different ways.  It is good that the criminal was caught, but what type of precedent is being set for mobile tracking through this case.  How far will the expansion of this method of tracking reach out?  When is it deemed a reach into personal liberties?  In this particular case it is easy to see it worked out nicely, but it is always good to be skeptical of such large precedents being set when it comes to constitutional liberties, in this particular case the 4th amendment.  As frustrating as it is to see a criminal hide behind the constitution like that one must still factor in constitutional protection.    Take a look at the article and you’ll see references to the original court documents and case details.  It will definitely raise questions.
