+ - GPS Tracking of State Worker Raises Privacy Issues-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "According to the article, "New York State officials tracked Cunningham's whereabouts by secretly attaching a GPS device to his BMW. ... The electronic tailing went beyond what would normally be termed Cunningham's work hours, since the device was on for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They even tracked him on a multi-day family vacation. ... Cunningham's battle with the agency... began years ago with his contention that he was punished for blowing the whistle on pressure placed on employees to attend a prayer breakfast sponsored by then-Gov. George Pataki." The NYCLU is pursuing a lawsuit against the state regarding the tracking."
