A decision by a trial judge in Chicago to grant lawyers for a terrorism suspect unprecedented access to secret intelligence-court records would be a "sea change" in how such sensitive documents are handled and could end up jeopardizing national security, U.S. government attorneys argue in a hard-hitting appeal filed on Monday.
A judge on Friday took the Justice Department to task for failing to inform the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that a federal court in California had issued orders to preserve phone data collected in a government surveillance program.
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.
A federal judge has directed the government to preserve phone data gathered under a National Security Agency surveillance program beyond a five-year limit.
A federal judge in San Francisco stopped the destruction of millions of telephone records collected by the National Security Agency more than five years ago.
Google will be free to tell the American public how often it has been solicited by the federal government to provide sensitive customer information in response to national security threats.
Connecticut U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal says he will continue to seek a robust and independent advocate to argue against the government in the secret federal surveillance court under plans to reform some U.S. surveillance practices ordered by President Barack Obama.
President Barack Obama is still grappling with key decisions on the future of the National Security Agency's phone collection program and the makeup of the secret court that approved the surveillance, lawmakers said Thursday following a 90-minute meeting at the White House.

Americans must muster the courage to confront Big Brother's spying
The Obama administration is doing all it can, short of dispatching a squad of park rangers to barricade the justices' parking spaces, to prevent the Supreme Court from reviewing the National Security Agency's domestic spying enterprise. The administration's lawyers insist that lower courts can deal with the spy program, since the issue is too new to bother the high court with it. This is an argument too clever by half, since the administration further argues that lower courts have no jurisdiction in the first place.
The Senate's senior lawmaker said Tuesday that it is time to repeal provisions of the Patriot Act that the intelligence community has relied on to collect all Americans' phone records, saying they are not making the country safer.
Government officials for nearly three years accessed data on thousands of domestic phone numbers they shouldn't have and then misrepresented their actions to a secret spy court to reauthorize the government's surveillance program, documents released Tuesday show.
James B. Comey Jr., a former George W. Bush administration official and now President Obama's nominee for FBI director, defended the approval by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of surveillance programs and dismissed arguments that the court was a "rubber stamp."
In 2012, Sen. Ron Wyden, Oregon Democrat, said that Americans would be "stunned" by the government's interpretation of its surveillance authority.
