Hey Law Talking Guy,
I have some questions for you.
1) Is it true that if we immediately scrapped the Patriot Act today, that law enforcement agencies would be prevented from ever investigating credit card purchases or library records of suspects?
2) Is it true that under pre-2001 law, domestic surveillance required a lengthy legal approval process before surveillance could begin?
3) More currently...what is the significance of the latest ruling in the Padilla case?
