Nice.  Jack Bouboushian of Courthouse News reports that a federal magistrate judge in the District of Columbia has asked EFF to file an amicus brief on the technology and constitutional issues implicated  in government requests for historical cell site location information:

There are 87 opinions publicly available that address cell site information, but these decisions “are impossible to reconcile,” U.S. Magistrate Judge John Facciola wrote.

The judge’s call for input by the digital rights group comes on the government’s renewed petition for disclosure of a particular telephone number’s historical cell site information (CSLI).

Facciola had rejected the government’s petition last year.
