    NSA Surveillance legal cases -- links to details, opinions

    A couple of cases have been brought to U.S. District courts that are of interest in the NSA surveillance of U.S. citizens.

    As of December 27, an opinion in each of two separate cases has been issued. Basically, two different cases on the same basic issue of NSA domestic spying on U.S. citizens, but each with different opinions on the constitutionality.

    Klayman v Obama et al - Opinion 12/16/2013 -- Case #Civil Action 2013-0881-40, U.S. District Court, District Of Columbia. General link to rulings at USDOC/DC, for 2013: click. Judgement = "likely unlawful" (the domestic spying on U.S. citizens via broad sweeping up of phone records).

    ACLU v Clapper - Opinion 12/27/2013 -- Case # 13-CV-3994, in U.S. District Court, Southern District of NY (including Manhattan). General link to rulings at USDC/SDONY: click. Judgement = constitutional (the domestic spying on U.S. citizens via broad sweeping up of phone records).


    Result: almost certainly, these cases will be heading to the court of appeals, then possibly to the U.S. Supreme Court.
