    Umm, wha?! One to keep an eye on.

    Additionally the dissenting judge opinions with 1984 references can be found on the 9th Circuit web site here: http://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/datastore/opinions/2010/08/12/08-30385.pdf

    While I have no sympathy for the drug dealer this is a truly scary decision. Let's hope the countries most reversed appelate court gets reversed on this one. I really hope this goes to the Supreme court.

    And don't worry that "they're" reading these posts either. I'm sure a Carnivore system is assigned to each and every website similar to this reading to see what's being said. And our fancy screen names are completely transparent to Big Brother.

    Hard to believe that a warrant isn't required to place the tracker. I'd hate to see the drug scum get off, but I'd like to see this particular ruling get overturned.

    Don't understand why the cops didn't get a warrant in the first place. Without the warrant they risked their entire case on a future ruling of the court. Perhaps they already knew how it was going to turn out? Wait, that's sounding paranoid . . .
