En føderal dommer, Richard J. Leon,  feller en knusende dom over overvåkingsprogrammene som Edward Snowden har avslørt og kaller dem «orwellske» og i strid med grunnloven.

 

“I cannot imagine a more ‘indiscriminate’ and ‘arbitrary’ invasion than this systematic and high-tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen for purposes of querying and analyzing it without prior judicial approval,” Judge Leon wrote in a 68-page ruling. “Surely, such a program infringes on ‘that degree of privacy’ that the founders enshrined in the Fourth Amendment,” which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.
