MEMORANDUM AND ORDER: This Court grants the Government's application for cell-site information. It has presented, under seal, specific and articulable facts showing reasonable grounds to believe that the information sought is relevant and material to an ongoing criminal investigation. See 18 U.S.C. 2703(d). This Order authorizes telephone service providers to provide the Government with information which identifies the antenna tower receiving transmissions from the SUBJECT WIRELESS TELEPHONES at the beginning and end of a particular call made or received by the SUBJECT WIRELESS TELEPHONES' users, including information on what portion of that tower is receiving a transmission at the beginning and end of a particular call. This Order does not permit the Government to receive triangulation information or location information other than that transmitted at the beginning and end of particular calls. Additionally, for the reasons stated in Part I of this Memorandum and Order, the court directs the Magistrate Judge to issue, if still necessary, an Order authorizing the installation of the pen registers on the SUBJECT WIRELESS TELEPHONES that is consistent with the representations in the Government's letter of September 23, 2008. Ordered by Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis on November 22, 2008. (Lee, Tiffeny)
