[The Register] DC judge rips into the NSA over mass surveillance

Post by parityboy » Tue Nov 10, 2015 5:57 pm

In an extraordinary opinion, DC judge Richard Leon has laid into the NSA and US government for its bulk collection of phone records, and issued an injunction banning the collection of metadata on several individuals.

Railing against arguments made by the government to dismiss the case, claims it needed more time to make changes, and the argument that the USA Freedom Act makes the case moot, Leon's opinion [PDF] is unequivocal that the program breaks the US Constitution and infringes citizens' rights.

<snip>

As a result, Leon grants some of the plaintiffs an injunction that bars the US government from collecting their data, including metadata, and requires any data that the government already holds on them to be segregated.
