WASHINGTON — A judge is taking the Justice Department to task for failing to inform the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that a federal court in California had issued preservation orders for phone data collected in a government surveillance program.

The chief judge of the surveillance court, Reggie Walton, said Friday that the Justice Department should have made him aware of the preservation orders. Walton is demanding a written explanation from government lawyers.

The judge says he expects the government to be far more attentive to its obligations in its practice before the court.
