Chicago lawyer files federal lawsuit over police cellphone tracking system

A Chicago attorney on Thursday filed a federal lawsuit challenging the Chicago Police Department's use of a secret cellphone tracking system, arguing the practice should require a warrant and violates individual privacy.

Jerry Boyle, who is also a longtime volunteer for the National Lawyers Guild, brought the case after police intercepted information from his cellphone at a Black Lives Matter protest for Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 2015 on the West Side, according to the lawsuit.
