Welcome to Justiceline, ThinkProgress Justice’s morning round-up of the latest legal news and developments. Remember to follow us on Twitter at @TPJustice

  • The defendant who won his U.S. Supreme Court case arguing that police could not attach a wireless GPS device to his car has won a mistrial below after the jury deadlocked 6-6. In a controversial decision, the judge had allowed in cell-site data that showed where defendant Antoine Jones made and received about four months of calls.
  • In his “Sidebar” column, Adam Liptak mulls whether common Supreme Court arguments about a “flood of litigation” are misused. “If a legal theory is sound, is it a problem if it produces too much justice?”
  • Three New Hampshire Republican senators are taking up the cause of an allegedly missing constitutional amendment that they say was deleted in 1871.
  • More than a dozen lawyers for Guantanamo detainees are alleging conditions at the prison are deteriorating, and becoming “potentially life-threatening” following a 3-week hunger strike.
