7. The FISA court is OK with the release of it's ruling that the NSA violated the law

(Bold added for emphasis.)

FISC Will Not Object To Release of 2011 Court Opinion That Confirmed NSA’s Illegal Surveillance
By Sreeja VN | June 13 2013 1:32 AM


The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, or FISC, ruled Wednesday that it has no objection to the release of a 2011 opinion of the court, which found that some of the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs under the FISA Amendments Act, were unconstitutional....

~Snip~

However, the ruling will not make the opinion immediately available to the public, and EFF will have to pursue the matter in a lower court -- where it initially filed its plea -- which would then decide whether the document is eligible to be released under FOIA.

EFF attorney Mark Rumold welcomed the court’s ruling and said it is the first victory for a non-governmental party in the FISC.

"It's important to know that while this is a victory, it is a pretty modest one," he said. "It's the FISC realizing that the Department (of Justice) was making crazy arguments, and they quickly got rid of it. Now we have to go right back to the district court." said Mark Rumold, according to the Huffington Post.
