Judge: Feds Should Be More Open About Internet Surveillance

It's slow progress, but a federal judge agrees with the Electronic Frontier Foundation that federal agencies, including the FBI, are dragging their feet on releasing documents that would reveal the extent to which private companies will be forced to tailor their technology to make it easier for the government to spy on the Internet. The EFF has filed filed two freedom of information requests, in response to which they received damned little. Judge Richard Seeborg says the feds need to go back and try again.
