Federal judge rules NSA data collection legal

CheezburgerBrown . CheezburgerBrown . writes  |  about 9 months ago

CheezburgerBrown . (3417019) writes "A federal judge in New York has ruled the National Security Agency's massive data collection program is legal, one week after another federal judge ruled the opposite.

The conflicting rulings increase the likelihood that the challenges could someday end up before the Supreme Court.

The ruling on Friday came from District Judge William H. Pauley III, in the case of the ACLU vs. James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. The judge agreed with the federal government's request to dismiss the court.
