Another federal court ruling for transparency on FISA surveillance

A federal district judge ordered the Obama administration to cough up more information on its secret spying on U.S. citizens by collecting phone records. Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers told the Justice Department to produce 66 pages of documents for her review so she could judge if the records were wrongly withheld.

Rogers found the government had failed to make their case for withholding the information and that some documents previously withheld and then declassified demonstrated that some of the information should not have been kept under wraps.
