ACLU and Yale Law School Clinic have standing to seek FISA court rulings on data collection

Schwinn reports that a sharply divided Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, sitting en banc for the first time in its history, ruled that the ACLU and Yale Law School’s Media Freedom and Information Clinic have standing to seek redacted portions of FISC rulings that set out the legal basis for a government bulk-data-collection program. He noted that the ruling [text] means that the movants’ efforts to obtain the rulings can move forward, although it does not say anything about the merits. — Joe
