FISA Court Shuts Down DOJ's Attempt To Hold Onto Section 215 Metadata Indefinitely

As we recently covered, the DOJ asked the FISA court to extend the disposal deadline of phone metadata from the usual five years to an indefinite period of time, supposedly in order to preserve evidence it might need to present in lawsuits filed against the government. (Not that the DOJ has any intention of ever turning this information over, no longer how long the NSA holds onto it…) Somewhat surprisingly, (outgoing) FISC judge Reggie Walton has turned the DOJ's request down.
