Commonwealth v.Fredericq
Supreme Judicial Court, April 24, 2019
(Search and Seizure/Standing)


A passenger has standing to challenge a warrantless CSLI search because, by monitoring the telephone's CSLI, the police effectively monitored the movement of the car he was in 


In this case, “the defendant's consent to a search of his residence did not purge the seizure from the taint of the illegal CSLI search, where the consent was obtained through the use of information obtained from that search.”
