What more can those boobs in D.C. do before we finally say enough is enough. I know there are many suckling at the government's teat, but we needs must cut off their supply, they are just draining us dry!
If they installed a bit of malware, that then downloaded child porn on a computer, then they "bust" (pun totally intended) the user? I mean every piece of malware I have removed from someone's computer seems to download a bunch of crap as one of the first things it does... food for thought.
Balance something not codified in law, or the constitution against something that is specifically protected by the constitution... Let me see here... I'll just pick the one that doesn't go against the highway robber/sheriff of Nottingham...
They didn't file the paperwork properly. Just write it in as part of the policy, then charge the paperwork fees back to the commissioner, as a legitimate cost of doing business. (Sorry to badly paraphrase Frank Herbert's Dune)

If I were Sprint, I would claim that I couldn't properly represent my case to the court without being able to disclose every request, i.e. all the data covered by the NSF letters. Then they would either have to allow the disclosure of exactly how often, and all the parameters of the request, or bugger off, and forget this case. Either way, a win for Sprint. Either looking like a good guy (Sprint could use a win here... badly...) or getting the Govt. to back down (something the we need more of in general really).
I remember a little film, made back in '94. There was a line "Are you calling me on the cellular phone? I don't know you. Who is this? Don't come here, I'm hanging up the phone! Prank caller, prank caller!"
I'm glad Snowden let me know that my Cellular One phone was being tapped by the No Such Agency, back in '94!!!
Perhaps Google should not have hired Prenda Law as its lawyers. How is it that a troll can win these types of cases without ever doing anything useful, and they don't get slapped down, but a practicing entity can't?
