(Washington, DC) -- An NSA program that collects massive amounts of information about who calls who appears to be unconstitutional. That's the ruling today from a federal judge. Judge Richard Leon said he believes the NSA's metadata dragnet violates the Fourth Amendment against unreasonable searches. He added that the Department of Justice hasn't shown that the program has helped prevent terrorism. The judge issued an injunction against the program, but stayed his order pending appeal.
