Breaking News: Federal Judge Rules NSA Phone Record Collection is Unconstitutional

This one's hot off the presses. Fox News just released a news briefing indicating a Federal judge has ruled the NSA's mass collection of phone records is in direct violation of the Constitution of the United States of America. The judge ruled the NSA is violating the 4th Amendment rights of American citizens.

Here's the full text of the 4th amendment:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

The judge ruled that the two plaintiffs are likely to be able to prove to the courts that their privacy concerns outweigh the right of the government to collect phone data on the individuals without probable cause.

The judge immediately put his decision on hold to give the government the opportunity to appeal.

This is one to watch closely. Hopefully it's the first of many lawsuits filed with the intention of restoring our rights.
