"There is no Fourth Amendment violation because Skinner did not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in the data given off by his voluntarily procured pay-as-you-go cell phone," wrote Judge John Rogers, in the majority opinion. "If a tool used to transport contraband gives off a signal that can be tracked for location, certainly the police can track the signal."

Is this a game changer?

Next thing ya know, they won't be checking GPS, they'll be listening in. I'd be surprised if they haven't already started.

It would surprise me if they weren't doing much more, and already been at it for many years.
