Opposing Rulings on Surveillance May Lead to Supreme Court Case

The Liberty Beat

By: Derrick Broze

Two conflicting rulings on the National Security Agency’s massive surveillance system are headed to federal appeals court and possibly the Supreme Court. Last month the government’s spying program was upheld by a New York court. In Washington D.C. attorney Larry Klayman won a victory when a federal district judge ruled that the NSA’s collection of data was likely unconstitutional. He is now asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to ignore the government’s appeal and take the case straight to the supreme court. This move comes after a New York court ruled the NSA program to be constitutional.
