    I think Justice Thomas was wrong on the cell phone records. The records may be collected and kept by someone else, but that same statement applies to medical records. Yet my personal information is entirely protected from being sold or otherwise divulged by my doctors and other providers under HIPPA. But location data could tell someone about what health care providers I’m seeing and thereby about my medical situations.

    Since Congress has already established a right to privacy for health matters and personal information, why not for personal locations as well? Why shouldn’t we have a Personal Information Portability Protection Act? It’s nobody’s business where I’ve been UNTIL they suspect me of committing some crime that has already happened.

    Come to think about it, no vet has ever given one of my animals a med that wasn’t already in use for humans! They’re just much cheaper – probably because there’s no health insurance company paying for them.

    My take? Your info is now open to all kinds of prying eyes it wasnt available to before.

    Makes me think of burglarizing Ellsbergs office by Nixon,now just a keystroke away for example
