The Public Is Left in the Dark When Courts Allow Electronic Surveillance

http://j.mp/SRmzCz  (New York Times)

  "In Judge Smith's article, to be published in The Harvard Law and
   Policy Review, he describes a secret docket that dwarfs that of the
   Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which considers warrant
   applications in national security investigations. Using data from 2006
   and not a little extrapolation, Judge Smith estimated that there were
   about 30,000 sealed surveillance orders in federal courts that year,
   surpassing in a single year the entire output of the national security
   court since 1978."
