Cell Tracking Case Summary

Satisfactory Essays
The case that I chose is a lawsuit filed against the use of a cell tracking system. Jerry Boyle, a National Lawyers Guild volunteer, attends protests regularly to offer legal help to people being arrested and watch police behavior. The day of the incident, Boyle was present at a Black Lives Matter protest in Chicago. He says information on his cellphone was caught by a Chicago Police Department stingray device. These devices have access to one’s text messages, phone calls, and location. Surrounding phones can be tracked, as well. Boyle’s right to practice freedom of speech peacefully and right to be not be searched unreasonably were violated.
