We won the state secrets issue in the Hepting v. ATT case, and the litigation will proceed. There’s always the possibility that a narrower state secret issue may come up later on, and the government is sure to re-raise the issue, but this is a huge win. Congratulations, EFF!
Also, my Wired News column on an interesting South Korean wiretap scandal and the different way that nation dealt with the problem is here. It’s engendered the usual, “she must love terrorists!” response. How trite.
I won’t have time to read the ATT ruling, or respond to the lugheads who’ve commented on my column today, because Brad and I are going to have lunch with the mayor of the City of Fukuoka, in Kyushu, Japan today. We’re also going to see some robots. Photos soon.
