Delaware Superior Court Judge Jan R. Jurden has ruled the use of GPS tracking by police was a privacy infringement in a February arrest.


    Jurden tossed out the evidence gathered in the Feb. 24 arrest of a mal found with 10 pounds of marijuana because he was pulled over using a GPS tracking device police placed on his car 10 months earlier without a warrant.

    The Supreme Court will unlikely here the case, the Wilimington News Journal reports, because Jurden acted within the Delaware Constitution.
