Jones and GPS
When SCOTUS decided the Jones case and said placing a GPS device on a car was a search, the Court did not decide whether a warrant was required. Texas law has not required a warrant. But here is one federal court that has said a warrant is required:


Given the SCOTUS requirement for a warrant in the McNeely blood draw case, is the national trend toward requiring warrants?

Is there any argument that it is inapplicable to the states?
