Prosecutors: FBI Had Legal Right to Track New York Assemblyman by Cell Phone Tower

Assemblyman William Scarborough

Federal prosecutors said FBI agents did not violate the law by tracking a New York assemblyman using cell phone tower data, The Times-Union reports.

Assemblyman William Scarborough had no reasonable expectation of privacy because he was using a cell tower, which prosecutors argued is essentially a business record.

The Queens Democrat was arrested in October on 11 federal charges related to fraudulent travel vouchers from 2009 to 2012.

Tracking his whereabouts was key to the investigation, prosecutors said.

“The defendant could not have a constitutionally cognizable privacy interest in business records that he did not make and has never seen or kept, and that contain information he has never known,” the motion reads.

The Jersey Journal reports that Manzo lost his bid for reimbursement of $150k worth of legal fees paid over the course of a drawn-out corruption case. A federal judge threw the case out. Twice.

Battling it out with the U.S. Attorney’s Office since his 2009 arrest, according to the Jersey Journal, Manzo slipped free from the massive corruption and money-laundering probe that put a host of other Hudson County politicos behind bars.

In his ruling, the same judge who threw out Manzo’s second indictment, Judge Jose Linares, ruled that Manzo wouldn’t see a dime in reimbursements because the government case against him “was not groundless or without any legal merit” as Manzo tried to prove in court.
