Partner Peter Vogel Quoted in E-Commerce Times


E-Commerce Times spoke with Gardere Litigation Partner Peter S. Vogel, chair of Firm’s Internet, eCommerce and Technology Team, about the U.S. Supreme Court’s apparent anxiety over allowing the police and FBI to place GPS tracking devices on vehicles without a warrant or permission. Questions posed by U.S. Supreme Court Justices to attorneys making oral arguments in United States v. Jones suggest the case could have significant implications for search-and-seizure law and police practices.

According to Mr. Vogel, depending on how the Supreme Court words its opinion, this case could reach beyond criminal matters to civil lawsuits. "The Constitution provides protection for the invasion of privacy, but the Supreme Court may rule in such a way that GPS data may no longer be private," Mr. Vogel said, "so that litigants may be able to get evidence about when and where witnesses and parties travel."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
