Muslim American sues FBI over tracking movements

A California Muslim man sued the Obama administration and the FBI on Wednesday for violating his constitutional rights by tracking his movements with a GPS device hidden on his car.
Yasir Afifi, a 20-year-old American citizen by birth, studying in Santa Clara, California, was alerted to the tracking device by a mechanic last October when he took his car for an oil change. He was confronted by FBI agents days later after removing it.

The lawsuit accused the FBI and the Justice Department of violating his constitutional rights by conducting searches without a warrant, tracking his movements and chilling his freedom of association and freedom of speech.
