The FISC Decision On the Protect America Act
As discussed earlier, the FISC appellate court issued a decision today on the constitutionality of the Bush Administration's application of the Protect America Act. The panel was composed of Bruce Selya of the First Circuit, and Senior Judges Ralph Winter of the Second Circuit and Richard Arnold of the Eighth Circuit. The panel does not pass on any actions by the Bush Administration prior to the enactment of the PAA. To wit, the panel states that this is an "as applied" challenge to the Bush Administration's application of the PAA. More after I read the opinion.
