Judge – FBI needs more than Patriot Act to get ISP Records

According to the Associated Press, New York U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero gutted portions of the USA Patriot Act today. Judge Marrero held that FBI investigators must seek court approval before ordering Internet service providers (ISPs) to turn over customer records without customer consent. The judge went on to state the newly revised Patriot Act “offends the fundamental constitutional principles of checks and balances and separation of powers.”
