FBI let off cyber snooping hook

Author: JT Smith

The Register reports: "The FBI has been let of the hook in its court case against mobster Nicodemo Scarfo.
US District Judge Nicholas Politan has now ruled that the Bureau will not have to
reveal precisely how it managed to log evidence that Mr Scarfo was involved in
illegal gambling and loan sharking.

Mr Scarfo's lawyers claim that the FBI bugged him without possession of a bugging
warrant and so the evidence it gathered is inadmissible in court since it was
obtained illegally."
