Today, Yahoo announced plans to release new documents detailing its legal fight with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) . FISC is best known for authorizing the NSAs widespread data collection orders, issuing its decisions in secret because of the confidentiality of the programs involved. Yahoo says it was involved in a multi-year suit before the FISC court, challenging the courts authority for what we viewed as unconstitutional and overbroad surveillance, according to a post by Ron Bell, the companys general counsel. The full documents havent been uploaded yet, but Yahoo says they add up to roughly 1500 pages, some of which have been released previously in more redacted form.
