NSA: The Spys R Us

Keep dogging boys … You have struck a vein: EFF racks up another courtroom victory over the NSA: damning docs to follow.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation continues to rack up victories in its Jewel v NSA suit, through which it has been suing the US spy agency over illegal mass-surveillance for nearly a decade (three successive administrations have stalled the suit by invoking official secrecy, a deadlock that was broken thanks to the leaks released by the whistleblower Edward Snowden).

The latest news is that Judge Jeffrey White has ordered the government to unseal “any declassified material, like exhibits, declarations, and other ex parte submissions that the government had previously submitted to the court under seal” and refused to entertain the DoJ’s appeal.

EFF believes that the release will show that the DoJ lied to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court).
