My Way News - Judge Seals Documents in NSA Spying Suit

My Way News - Judge Seals Documents in NSA Spying Suit:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Secret documents that allegedly detail the surveillance of AT&T Inc. (T) phone and e-mail lines under the Bush administration's domestic spying program can be used in a lawsuit against the telephone giant, a federal judge ruled Wednesday, but the records will remain sealed.

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker rejected a bid by AT&T to return the records given to the privacy advocate Electronic Frontier Foundation by a former AT&T technician. But Walker said the records would remain under seal until it can be determined whether they reveal trade secrets.
Score one for this judge and for justice in general; something that has been given very short shrift as of late.
