The ACLU has argued in the lawsuit that it is unconstitutional for law enforcement in the U.S. to use mobile phones of people to track them, without the need for a warrant of anything of that nature.

The group filed a Freedom of Information request in 2007 to the Department of Justice to find out more about what was going on.

The ACLU is firmly behind the belief that people should be able to use their mobile phone without thinking they could be tracked at any time.
