United States, a case that raises the question of whether the government violates the Fourth Amendment by accessing an individual’s historical cell phone location records without a warrant.  The panel was hosted by Google and the Center for Democracy & Technology on November 28 – a day before oral arguments were held on the case before the US Supreme Court.
