Feds Tell Secret Spying Court to Keep Opinions Secret

The Justice Department told a secret spying court Friday that the court lacked the power to even hear the ACLU's request for it to release court opinions about the government's so-called Terrorist Surveillance Program...

While the government said that government sunshine requests were the more appropriate avenue to unseal the records, it also told the court that earlier in August another court ruled the documents were too secret to release, even in part. That ruling came in response to a suit brought by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which had sought the same records via the Freedom of Information Act.
