USA Patriot Act "national security letters" provision is thrown out by Court

The ACLU has been successful in challenging the portion of the USA Patriot Act that allows the FBI to compel the production of records without court authorization. Parry Aftab has a number of good blog entries about it, including her analysis of the decision. Take a look at Patriot Act Provision is thrown out by Court - effective date is delayed 60 days to allow government time to appeal, The Decision in ACLU v. Ashcroft, and Overview of the Section 2709 Patriot Act decision. While you're there, bookmark her excellent blog.
