Citation: United States v. Ransfer, 749 F.3d 914 (11th Cir. 2015)
Court Type: Federal Circuit Court
Court: 11th Circuit Court of Appeals (11th Cir.)
Judge: Federal District Judge: Michael M. Baylson
Rule(s): 4th Amendment
Issues:

Defendant moved to suppress information obtained from a warrantless placement of a GPS tracking device on a vehicle used in the commission or several robberies. The issue was whether the warrantless placement of the GPS device violated Defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights.

Resolution:

The Court held that the warrantless GPS installation did not violate Defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights. Under Davis, the Court applied the¬†good faith exception to the exclusionary rule, and found that the police acted in good faith reliance on a binding reasonable suspicion precedent when they placed a GPS tracking device on Defendant’s publicly-parked Ford Expedition.
