The Supreme Court today agreed to hear a landmark case on whether the government needs a warrant to access a person’s cell phone location history. The American Civil Liberties Union and ACLU of Michigan are co-counsel in the case, Carpenter v. United States.

“Cell phone location records can reveal countless private details of our lives, from where we sleep at night to where we worship, from the political rallies we attend to the doctors’ offices we visit,” said Dan Korobkin, deputy legal director of the ACLU of Michigan.
