A court fight is going on right now over a decision by government officials to use drones to spy on private property without obtaining a search warrant.

The eventual result undoubtedly will be watched by civil rights experts and government forces coast to coast as drones become more and more standard operating procedure.

"Americans are being swept up into a massive digital data dragnet that does not distinguish between those who are innocent of wrongdoing, suspects, or criminals. Aerial drone surveillance has become a de facto snitch for the police state," charged constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of "Battlefield America: The War on the American People."

"By subjecting Americans to surveillance without their knowledge or compliance, the government has erected the ultimate suspect society. In such an environment, there is no such thing as 'innocent until proven guilty.'"

The institute has worked with the Cato Institute to file a friend-of-the-court brief in the case Long Lake Township v. Maxon.
