AT&T Seeks Uniform Policy Regarding Disclosure of Customers’ Cell-Site Data

There is an ongoing debate regarding the necessity of warrants in the government’s quest to obtain cell-site data for telecommunications customers. AT&T recently weighed in on the matter, requesting clarity of the law requiring disclosure and urging the courts to adopt a uniform policy when it comes to disclosure of cell-site information. As it stands, a number of circuits have come down differently on the issue, and the Supreme Court has yet to weigh in. AT&T, along with many others, see this clarity as necessary in order to safeguard the privacy rights of their customers.
