Cell-Site Simulators and the Fourth Amendment: Government Surveillance By James B. Astrachan and Christopher J. Lyon
In June 2001, the late Justice Antonin Scalia remarked, "It would be foolish to contend that the degree of privacy secured to citizens by the Fourth Amendment has been entirely unaffected by the advance of technology." Kyllo v. U.S., 533 U.S. 27, 33-34 (2001). The Supreme Court, addressing government surveillance, confronted the question of "what limits there are upon this power of technology to shrink the realm of guaranteed privacy."
