Today the U.S. Supreme Court held in Carpenter v. U.S. that police need a search warrant to gather long-term cell phone location data on a suspect, despite a dissent by Justice Neil Gorsuch that would scrap the Fourth Amendment’s long-standing “reasonable expectation of privacy” test in favor of a property-interest test. Also, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed a criminal and ethical complaint against Treasury Secretary Wilbur Ross, alleging he violated the STOCK Act by short-selling stock in a company linked to Russia when he learned that the New York Times was about to publish an article about his Russian connections. And a new study to be published in the International Journal of Press/Politics found that male Beltway reporters are three times more likely to retweet male colleagues than to retweet female colleagues.
