After seeing what the government had on Daoud ... and after seeing what the government had on them ... the judges of the appellate court rendered their decision.
"Since Congress created the FISA court in 1978, no defense attorneys had been told they could go through a FISA application until U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman's January 29 ruling in Daoud's case. At the time, she said the fact that no judge had ever granted such FISA access before wasn't a reason not to do it now."
