Parts of "Patriot Act" Ruled Unconstitutional

Federal judge Victor Marrero of the Federal District Court in Manhattan ruled that parts of the Patriot Act allowing the F.B.I. to force communications companies, including phone and Internet service providers, to turn over their customers’ records without court authorization and permanently forbidding the companies from discussing what they had done was UNCONSTITUTIONAL - violating the First Amendment and the separation of powers guaranteed by the Constitution.

Thank GOD someone is starting to develop some sense about this stuff ...
