DETROIT (AP) -- A federal judge ruled Thursday that the government's warrantless wiretapping program is unconstitutional and ordered an immediate halt to it.

U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in Detroit became the first judge to strike down the National Security Agency's program, which she says violates the rights to free speech and privacy.


The question of course, is how could we know they have followed the judge's order? Here's the rest of the article by the "Washington Post's" Dan Eggen.

And here's actual written decision.
