United States v. Houston
6th Circuit Court of Appeals; Case No. 14-5800
Panel decision United States v. Houston, No. 14-5800, 2016 WL 482210 (6th Cir. Feb. 8, 2016).
The Panel fails to account for the realities of modern technology. Long-term electronic surveillance is qualitatively different from personal observation. The Panel opinion authorized constant, warrantless government surveillance. To engage in long-term, covert surveillance, police simply need a warrant.
