US District Judge William H. Pauley Rules NSA’s Mass Collection of Phone Data Legal

US District Judge William H. Pauley  NSA Mass Collection of Phone Data as Legal - International Business Times

From the NY Times
Federal Judge William Pauley on Friday ruled that a National Security Agency program that collects enormous troves of phone records is legal, making the latest contribution to an extraordinary debate among courts and a presidential review group about how to balance security and privacy in the era of big data.
In just 11 days, the two judges and the presidential panel reached the opposite of consensus on every significant question before them, including the intelligence value of the program, the privacy interests at stake and how the Constitution figures in the analysis.
