Submission + - Student sues FBI for planting GPS tracker (yahoo.com)

GabriellaKat writes: This story was also covered last year when he found the tracking device.
"Yasir Afifi, 20, says a mechanic doing an oil change on his car in October discovered the device stuck with magnets between his right rear wheel and exhaust. They weren't sure what it was, but Afifi had the mechanic remove it and a friend posted photos of it online to see whether anyone could identify it. Two days later, Afifi says, agents wearing bullet-proof vests pulled him over as he drove away from his apartment in San Jose, Calif., and demanded their property back."
Now he has decided to sue the FBI
