National Security Letters

edited March 2013 in Politics
Found unconstitutional by a federal district judge.
she stayed her order for 90 days to give the government a chance to appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
If I had to guess, I'm betting 9th circuit upholds. What's the chances this is going to make it all the way to the top?

    The probability is 1. The Administration, no matter which one were in power, hates giving up blank checks, and NSL have been one of their most abused. The Ninth Circuit is liberal enough that they'll uphold it, and the Supreme Court is the right mixture of cowtowed and insane enough that they'll reverse it, but for a few brief years we'll be able to pretend to have fourth amendment rights again... except at Airports.
