Lunchtime listen: Does The Patriot Act Violate Free Speech?

I found this NPR story this morning very interesting. The U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments today in a case that pits an individual’s right of free speech and association against USAPA. The case is being brought by the nonprofit Humanitarian Law Project. Too bad the briefs for this case aren’t publicly available yet (at least not on FindLaw 🙁 ). This would be a slam dunk for the Humanitarian Law Project if their name was followed by “LLC.”
