A federal judge gave the FBI until July 5 deadline to finish processing an estimated 100,000 pages of records it must release to a San Francisco based technology-rights group. The court set an Aug. 24 target date for resolving any disputes over records the government wants to keep secret. The records involve the FBI’s use of National Security Letters to conduct secret surveillance. The agency has acknowledged more than 1,000 possible violations in use of the letters since 2002.
