Jones, Antoine

Case Summary

Case Name:

United States of America v. Antoine Jones

Court Name:

Supreme Court of the United States

Case Filed:

5/2/2008

Allegations

This case will be heard by the Supreme Court this year.  In this case, the police placed a GPS device on the defendant’s vehicle to track his movements for a month.  The defendant says that this violated his Fourth Amendment rights protecting him from a government search without a warrant.  The government argues that is was not a search and they don’t need a warrant. 

OOIDA filed an Amicus Brief on October 3, 2011, in this case to explain to the Supreme Court that it has “serious concern that the government’s indiscriminate, relentless and intrusive use of warrantless surveillance devices such as EOBRs would violate the constitutional rights of drivers”.
