Judge Could Torpedo NSA Surveillance Programs Monday

A federal judge could grant a preliminary injunction blocking some National Security Agency surveillance programs as early as Monday.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon will consider oral arguments for and against a broad preliminary injunction request Nov. 18 in Washington, D.C., during a hearing that pits Department of Justice lawyers against Larry Klayman, a former Reagan administration prosecutor who leads the advocacy group Freedom Watch.

Leon expressed a sense of urgency in scheduling the hearing and made comments that could be construed as favorable to opponents of NSA surveillance.

I really want to believe this

I really want to believe this will happen. I will believe it when I see it. Great article though, thanks for posting.

If there were a chance of that this judge wouldn't have the case

Don't expect the government to deny the government 'authority' to do what the government wants to do.

The only time this occurs is when the feds deny the states or municipalities. ie Heller or Roe. And they can't even be counted on for that.

There are exceptions but they are very rare and minor. This is systemic corruption and overreach.

These cases are mainly a fig leaf so people think they got their 'day in court' so they will hopefully shut up as all the media proclaims 'the programs have withstood Consitutuional challenge'.
