US appeals court says no to NSA bulk data sweep

The NSA’s massive collection of phone records of Americans goes far beyond what Congress authorized, an appeals court ruled Thursday, in a decision that pressures Congress to enact reforms. The laws used as a basis for the National Security Agency’s bulk data collection “have never been interpreted to authorize anything approaching the breadth of the sweeping surveillance at issue here,” the Second Circuit Court of Appeals said in a 97-page opinion. The ruling ups the pressure on Congress to pass reforms on surveillance laws ahead of a June 1 expiration of the key law in question.
