Iowa patent and intellectual property attorney Brett Trout posted yesterday on the recent ruling from a federal judge that struck down a key part of the Patriot Act.  Brett refers to an article from the Associated Press.

It is important to note the judge immediately stayed his ruling so the government could appeal.  I will follow this case as it moves forward and provide updates.  This is a critical issue for Internet Service Providers.

A nice overview of the ruling and its potential impact is found on Concurring Opinions.
