administration's NSA spying program, U.S. District Court Judge Anna
Diggs Taylor rules that the program to monitor the phone calls and
e-mails of millions of Americans without warrants is unconstitutional.
Calling for a halt to this abuse of presidential power, Judge Taylor
states that “[t]here are no hereditary Kings in America and no powers
not created by the Constitution,” so all the president's “inherent
powers” must derive from the Constitution.
UPDATE: A Banner across the top on CNN.com reads: The U.S. Department of Justice has announced that it will appeal a
federal judge's ruling that the government's warrantless wiretapping
program is unconstitutional. Guess the fights moves on.
