A judge in New Jersey has recently ruled that it’s totally OK and perfectly legal to use GPS tracking devices to track down your cheating spouse. Using technology to uncover infidelity! Just like we imagined all along.
The ruling was made on the case of Kenneth Villanova. A GPS tracking device was used on him by his wife at the time, and Villanova sued for invasion of privacy (Villanova was caught in another woman’s driveway with a GPS tracker). The judge ruled that Villanova shouldn’t have expected privacy because he was on a public street anyway.
The use of GPS trackers has long been a point of contention for private investigators and their investigatees. With its approval, cheaters will have to up their game to battle technology. [NJ]
