Beware cops attaching GPS devices to your car and elsewhere
Last Tuesday, the Virginia Court of Appeals found no Fourth Amendment violation where police placed a GPS device to a criminal suspect’s vehicle. Foltz v. Virginia, ___ Va. App. ___ (Sept. 7, 2010).
Hopefully Virginia’s Supreme Court will accept the case for review, and reverse the Virginia Court of Appeals.
ADDENDUM: On September 23, 2010, the Virginia Court of Appeals granted en banc review of Foltz. and stayed the mandate of the Foltz panel in the interim
