– Critics say police should be allowed to acquire global positioning data only by getting a warrant. Renée Hutchins, JD, assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Law, wrote an article recently suggesting that global positioning system data is protected under the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. "I think that in the last couple of years," Hutchins said, "people are starting to be aware that if they have these units in their car, people can keep track of you. I think it’s a growing public awareness. The problem is that most people feel like, ‘I’m not doing anything wrong, so who cares?’ But I think that’s the wrong way of looking at it."

– Although polygraph results generally are not permitted in criminal proceedings in state court, Circuit Judge Lawrence R. Daniels offered to let a man take the test while weighing whether to reduce the five-year prison sentence the judge imposed in a separate case for a probation violation after the defendant was convicted of attempted murder in the shootings of two women. "It’s the first I've ever heard of a polygraph being used like that," said Abraham Dash, JD, a professor emeritus at the School of Law. "But sentencing is pretty much a subjective thing. To me, it’s sort of the same kind of thing as if you admit your guilt and say you're sorry, I'll consider the apology in lowering your sentence."
