Reflections on Civil Liberties and National Security
Judge Hogan described the specialized work of FISA Court as well as the considerations that he and his fellow FISA judges routinely face while deliberating these highly sensitive cases. When issues of national security are on the line, a delicate balance must be achieved to ensure that civil rights, privacy, and religious interests of Americans are preserved—all while properly pursuing perpetrators. Judge Hogan said, “these cases impact us more today than ever before…[and] no longer are confined to law review articles.”
