District Court Judge Invalidates Part of FISA:
District Judge Ann Aiken of the United States District Court in Oregon has just handed down a surprising opinion striking down parts of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and specifically 50 U.S.C. §§ 1804 and 1823, as facially unconstitutional under the Fourth Amendment. The opinion is here; I just printed it out and will be blogging a reaction shortly. Thanks to Eric Freedman for the tip.
