My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: California, and the entire United States.
If a human tracking GPS business came up with a plan to begin implementing devices in children with parental consent; and the device could not only pinpoint an exact location, but also sense vitals (breathing and circulation), how would this run through the legal system? This is merely a safety and protective device against kidnappers, sex offenders, and other like criminals.
Now of the privacy torts, the only one that really applies is intrusion. And a defense to intrusion is consent, which has been given by the parent. The child has the decision to remove the device once he/she turns 18, and the parents may remove the device at any time.
In order to prevent obsessive parents, there is a fee for each time the product is actually used. But I am just looking for legal advice here. This is for a university business class project.
