Secret Court

The nation’s only court that operates in secrecy, the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review, may not have a Web site of its own, like other federal appeals courts, but its decision this week affirming the government’s broad power to investigate suspected spies and terrorists made it onto the Web. The complete text of the ruling was published Nov. 18 on the Web site of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. (Thanks to John DeBruyn for pointing this out on Network-Lawyers.)
