"Cellphone Tracking Powers on Request; Secret Warrants Granted Without Probable Cause": The Washington Post today contains a front page article that begins, "Federal officials are routinely asking courts to order cellphone companies to furnish real-time tracking data so they can pinpoint the whereabouts of drug traffickers, fugitives and other criminal suspects, according to judges and industry lawyers. In some cases, judges have granted the requests without requiring the government to demonstrate that there is probable cause to believe that a crime is taking place or that the inquiry will yield evidence of a crime. Privacy advocates fear such a practice may expose average Americans to a new level of government scrutiny of their daily lives."

"Friends in High Places": In the current issue of CQ Weekly, columnist Kenneth Jost has an essay that begins, "Equal Justice Under Law is carved in big letters over the Corinthian columns framing the main entrance to the Supreme Court. While the goal has always been more aspirational than actual, a leading expert says the gap between the hope and the reality is widening. The reason: the emergence of an elite corps of Supreme Court advocates, most of them with big corporate law firms in Washington, who appear to be having outsized influence in shaping the court's docket and its decisions to advance the interests of well-heeled business clients."
