Sep 2, 2015 | Privacy and Data Security Law

In a hearing in Klayman v. Obama, Judge Leon made it clear he will only determine whether the government is collecting the phone records from Verizon Wireless. He will not revisit the constitutional issue. Judge Leon also urged the plaintiffs to move quickly.

“The window is very small in the view of law,” he said. “You need to be thinking about the fastest, most expeditious” way to move the case, he told Klayman. “I didn’t think it would take so long to get back here.”
