I think that's a great idea from an advocacy point of view -- but I
should point out that while the judge ruled the nondisclosure aspect of
NSLs unconstitutional, she also stayed her own judgement pending appeal,
which is to say that the current secret state of NSLs remain in place
while a higher court considers the matter.
Well actually, they stop being secret in 90 days if the government does
not appeal. I have weirdest feeling that the DoJ might seek to take this
fight a bit further however.
The ruling as ever, is worth reading in full.
