Supreme Court: Warrant generally need to track location with cell data

With much of Chicago and national media busy covering political news in a tumultuous time, some important stories get overlooked or are given short shrift. Let’s rewind the clock a few days and take a look at the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on privacy rights.

U.S. Senator acquitted of bribery

In 2015, U.S. Senator from New Jersey Robert Menendez was charged with 18 counts of corruption, which included allegations of fraud, conspiracy and bribery. Seven of these counts--all bribery offenses--were connected to Mendenez's relationship with his long-time friend, Dr. Salomon Melgen. Melgen purportedly bought Menendez a lavish trip to Paris and donated to his political campaign in exchange for Mendendez's assistance with a medical dispute, a port security contract and securing U.S. visas for Melgen's girlfriends.

There are both state and federal laws that ban the use of illicit drugs, and the consequences associated with these charges can ruin people's lives. Even if they are able to get out of jail at some point in the future, they are often left devoid of options to recover from their crime because their criminal history reduces their chances to find suitable living or a job.

Given all of the recent discussion over the last week about the latest version of the healthcare bill, it's possible that many people overlooked a joint announcement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price concerning a national health care fraud crackdown.
