Federal Appeals Court Derides Administration's Case On Wiretaps And Internet Phone Companies

by Steve

Note the reaction from a federal appeals court today to the Federal Communication Commission's arguments that a 1994 law applying to phone companies and police wiretaps also applies to internet phone service providers.

Given that one of these three judges is a far right judge, and that Janice Rogers Brown said nothing today but has already voted against the FCC in a case since she was elevated to the DC court of appeals, it makes you wonder how the Administration would fare if and when it is forced to defend its assertions about inherent authority to do NSA data mining and electronic surveillance.
