Too much presumption.,
The reliance on North Carolina V Grady 575 US 306(2015) by the plaintiffs here is the crux of hold up IMO. The facts in Grady concerned an offender who’d attacked a child in his own home\residence. The issue was Satellite Based Monitoring in Grady and is not very different in intent, because WI Congress uses and calls it GPS (bracelet). By any name we still describe and discuss the people’s use of the database driven infrastructure. WI GPS Tracking like NC SBM also utilizes restraint on bearer movement by necessitating permissions from gov agents after end of sentence as here.
Lawyers in Grady successfully argued Gradys’ case on the fact the man had not evidenced violence outside of his own home (MODIS) and therefore the ex-post exposure to North Carolina ‘s SBM, which “actively” searches for and identified Grady’s exact position multiple times( 37-58 times per minute) in his home, and anywhere he went or moved thus was in effect rendering the NC SBM regime continious* search without the necessary prerequisites. Much of the justification for such regimes are psychologically based sex and violence or compulsion (Operand-i in criminal behavioral). Obviously searching a rapist continuously in his own home prevents nothing and given Grady had not been proven the invasion threat by his original wrong doing. I suspect the delay is infact multiple rulings for differences in operandi, and mixed remands to various contexts.and cases.
On of the problems with the use of ex post law by Congress is the temporal challenges in differing parties because of the fact that different conviction & judgement dates necessarily require different interpretations as persons are situated differently with relevant statute dates and timeframes.

This is Wisconsin. I haven’t seen anything ever come out positive for ANY OFFENDER convicted in that State. If they can apply, then change the law at will, and be able to bypass ex post facto laws, i see this as a no win again. As i have said before, and i have been dealing with Wisconsin since my imposed sentence in 1983, they be making money. That to a politician, and job security, is all they want.. more money to get out of gps.

We truly live in the most socialist governed state in the 50. Judge Rehnquist was raised seeped in such notions because of the environment where and how he was raised. We are all products of our rearing! The founders were seeped in Roman and greek culturs. Wisconsin’s political history and especially Milwaukee’s history is dominated by socialist thought. These people think a database like SOR will aid the protection before attack occurs. Nothing can be further from the truth. Obviously the registries harshly diminish the sovereignty of the sex offender citizen, but make no mistake, the rest of citizens sovereignty went with them. They just didn’t know it!
Nevertheless it becomes apparent!

Every day that these justices delay in making a decision on this case, which clearly is against WI, just continues to make me and countless other suffer thru the daily regiment of keeping the GPS operating so that we can continue our not so completely normal lives and not return to jail.
I was discharged in late June 2019 and have had no problems. BUT, I still can’t go downhill skiing, water skiing, swimming , do long sessions in a spa or sauna, or anything where water or ANYTHING can severely affect my GPS. It is a burden to deal and I want it off now. I did my 15 years. Let me do the rest of my years truly free.

constantly charging the battery should be worth a lot of money to proponents making that technical service as valuable as the need for monitoring.
