ABSTRACT
The article discusses the application of mosaic theory by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in its decision regarding global positioning system (GPS) surveillance in United States v. Maynard. It says that the Court concludes that the warrantless use of GPS device to continuously monitor a suspect for nearly a month was a search for Fourth Amendment purposes. It presents the facts and procedural history of the case involving Lawrence Maynard' alleged drug trafficking operation, and the Maynard court's use of the reasonable expectation of privacy analysis derived from United States v. Katz. It suggests that courts should continue to explore the addition of mosaic theory to existing Fourth Amendment doctrine.
