The details will become known once the U.S. Department of Justice releases a secret memo that covers legal interpretations of controversial Section 215 of the Patriot Act, “including legal analysis of law enforcement and intelligence agency access to census records,” according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).

EFF fought a four-year legal battle to get the memo, produced by the Office of Legal Counsel, released under the Freedom of Information Act. The Justice Department dropped an appeal after losing an earlier court decision on the matter. EFF reported it had not received the memo as of January 29.
