D.C. Magistrate Judge Asks EFF, Feds For Further Assistance With Technical Issues In Cell Phone Disclosure Case
U.S. Magistrate Judge John Facciola has asked the Electronic Frontier Foundation to serve as amicus curiae in a case involving the federal government's request for the disclosure of historic cell site location information (CLSI). The judge noted that nearly 90 publicly available opinions exist on the issue and that these opinions "are impossible to reconcile." Therefore, he has asked the EFF and the federal government to "provide the Court with a list of specific topics, issues, or questions that will help it probe into the relevant factual issues."
