Distinguished Fourth Amendment Expert Orin Kerr Comments on NYT’s FISA Piece
Professor Orin Kerr from George Washington University Law School, one of the leading experts on the Fourth Amendment law in the digital age, has a must-read piece for constitutional wonks at The Volokh Conspiracy with his reactions to Eric Lichtblau’s recent New York Times article about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
I find Lichtblau’s writing to be sufficiently vague that his distillation of the opinions leaves me with more questions than answers. In this post, I want to go through what Lichtblau says about the Fourth Amendment rulings of the FISA court and why his descriptions leave me confused.
As always, Kerr writes cleanly and clearly on his topic.
