Warrantless Surveillance Program Headed to High Court

A constitutional showdown over the U.S. government’s warrantless surveillance program may be headed back to the Supreme Court.

The Department of Justice for the first time notified a criminal defendant that the terrorism-related charges against him stemmed from Congress’ 2008 amendments to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

The filing came after Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, the government’s advocate to the Supreme Court, won an internal Justice Department debate over whether defendants must be advised about such secret surveillance.
