For the most part, privacy took a back seat to national security as vaguely defined terms such as “sensitive but unclassified” came more into play in the courts.

In the Congress, for a change, there is some movement, and the possibilities for new legislation greater than in recent years with the introduction of several FOIA bills. The Freedom Forum First Amendment Center has these special reports on the Courts, Electronic Access and the Congress, and the text of a speech by Lee Levine on privacy from the 2005 FOI Day Conference on its website.
