How to Become a Bounty Hunter



NSA’s Policy of Collecting Phone Records in U.S. Likely Unconstitutional, Judge Rules

The National Security Agency is likely violating the Constitution by gathering the dialing records of all phone calls in the U.S., the Los Angeles Times reports.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon delivered a significant blow to the NSA and lays the groundwork for a Supreme Court battle.

Leon’s ruling doesn’t go into effect immediately because he stayed the action pending an appeal by the federal government, the Times wrote.

“I cannot imagine a more ‘indiscriminate’ and ‘arbitrary invasion’ than this systematic and high-tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen for purposes of querying and analyzing it without prior judicial approval,” wrote the judge, who was appointed to the federal district court by President George W. Bush.
