A Calif. Appeals Court issued a modified opinion rejecting the ACLU lawsuit against law enforcement agencies in the Los Angeles area.

License plate readers are even being used to collect taxes!  The ACLU published a revealing report on what license plate readers collect, I posted some of what they discovered near the end of the article.

The following opinion is one of the most disturbing I have read except for the Patriot Act:
