The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court again rejected a request from the ACLU to shed a little sunshine on its regulation on the government’s electronic surveillance. The court rejected a petition to allow publication of unclassified court documents and to allow non-government lawyers to argue in court. Surveillance Court Judge Marya McLaughin said in response to the ACLU petition that the public has no right to know more about the workings of the court. (9/2/08)
