Illegal Wiretapping Is Illegal!

Think Progress has pdf's of the Decision and Injunction here.

The Permanent Injunction of the TSP requested by Plaintiffs is granted inasmuch as each ofthe factors required to be met to sustain such an injunction have undisputedly been met.59The irreparable injury necessary to warrant injunctive relief is clear, as the First and Fourth Amendment rights of Plaintiffs are violated by the TSP. See Dombrowski v. Pfister, 380 U.S. 479 (1965). The irreparable injury conversely sustained by Defendants under this injunction may be rectified by compliance with our Constitution and/or statutory law, as amended if necessary. Plaintiffs have prevailed, and the public interest is clear, in this matter. It is the upholding of our Constitution.

As Justice Warren wrote in U.S. v. Robel, 389 U.S. 258 (1967):
Implicit in the term ‘national defense’ is the notion of defendingthose values and ideas which set this Nation apart. . . . It would indeed be ironic if, in the name of national defense, we wouldsanction the subversion of . . . those liberties . . . which makes thedefense of the Nation worthwhile. Id. at 264.
