2nd Cir. Refuses to Require Gov't to Address NSA Surveillance 2nd Cir. Refuses to Require Gov't to Address NSA Surveillance

2nd Cir. Refuses to Require Gov't to Address NSA Surveillance - TalkLeft: The Politics of Crime. The left seems a bit upset about this. Lefty attorney Terry Kindlon filed for mandamous for the 2nd Circuit to overrule an "appeal of a secret court order refusing to make the Government admit or deny that it engaged in illegal warrantless electronic surveillance of his client, an Iman at a mosque charged with money laundering". But what is great is that the 2nd Circuit then sealed and classified its opinion.

A couple of things are obvious here. First the claims of illegality in the NSA international communications surveilance program are not clear cut - or, maybe even worse for Kindlon, et al., the government is correct about the legality of the program. And secondly, the courts see this too - two courts in a row here have found for the govt.
