An appeals court overturned Washington D.C. nightclub owner Antoine Jones’ life sentence. .In Jones case, police installed a GPS device on his vehicle without a search warrant and tracked his movements for a month and linked him to a suburban house where he stashed money and drugs.
The Supreme Court agreed with the appeals courts decision.
