A year ago, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Electronic Frontier Foundation asked the Justice Department for records on the tracking of individuals by using their cell phones as homing beacons. Now, lacking a response, the two NGOs have filed suit under the Freedom of Information Act. They hope the records will shed some light on the prevalence of such requests, and on the extent of judicial scrutiny to which they are subject. (7/3/08)
