A federal court today ruled that the FBI can’t compel ISPs to turn
over user records without notifying those users unless it has a
court order or a grand jury subpoena.
The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York struck
down part of the amended Patriot Act’s National Security Letter
(NSL) provision, according to the American Civil Liberties Union
(ACLU), which had filed a lawsuit challenging the provision.
