WASHINGTON EXAMINER: The Supreme Court’s chance to take on government surveillance and secrecy
Next week, the justices will decide whether to take up a case, Wikimedia Foundation v. NSA, that raises a narrow but vital question for surveillance and the rule of law. Wikimedia asks the Supreme Court to decide whether and when the government can invoke secrecy to halt lawsuits challenging executive branch overreach.
The Supreme Court’s decision on whether to take up this case will have long-lasting implications for independent oversight of the NSA, CIA, and FBI, and other intelligence agencies. Meanwhile, the public’s privacy hangs in the balance.
