  NSA Court Decision - MP3
Running Time: 1:07:48

A Federalist Society Symposium on the National Security Agency’s Bulk Data Seizures and FISA Surveillance Programs Earlier this week, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon ruled that the National Security Agency's bulk collection of telephone metadata is unconstitutional under the Fourth Amendment. Judge Leon enjoined the program in its entirety, but immediately stayed his injunction pending appeal, citing national security considerations. On a Teleforum conference call, our experts discussed the data collection program, Judge Leon’s decision, and the next steps in the case.
