First Surveillance Order Issued by New Court Under USA Freedom Act

2016-04-19 22:36:33

The first order under a new electronic surveillance law has been issued by the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
According to National Security Agency, the order was issued on Dec. 31 at the NSA's request.
Signed by FISC Chief Judge Thomas Hogan, the court concluded the surveillance application met new requirements imposed by the USA Freedom Act.
President Barack Obama signed the law last year, ending the previous policy of collecting metadata records in bulk.
Under the new law, the government must request targeted information from telecoms companies after obtaining authorization from the foreign intelligence court.
