The courts will not save us


Ars TechnicaThe first major judicial ruling slamming the NSA's bulk collection of phone records has been overturned. In 2013, US District Judge Richard Leon ruled the program was likely unconstitutional, but held off on shutting it down until an appeals court could weigh in.

That's finally happened, and the appeals ruling (PDF) shows the three-judge panel didn't see things the same way as Leon.

3-0 ruling, with opinions claiming that the government can regulate "what the citizen may know". Which is utter nonsense.
