The Justice Department desperately tried to delay the ACLU's recently filed lawsuit over the NSA's surveillance efforts. The DOJ claimed that, since the intelligence agencies have been working to declassify info on those programs, any lawsuit should wait until those decisions are made. Thankfully, however, Judge William Pauley recognized that justice delayed is justice denied and rejected that argument. The case will move forward with motions filed by the end of August and the case to begin by November.
