U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon says that the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of millions of Americans' telephone records is likely unconstitutional, the Associated Press reports on WATE. Leon has put his decision to grant an injunction against the NSA on hold, however, predicting a government appeal would take at least six months. He said he was staying the ruling pending appeal "in light of the significant national security interests at stake in this case and the novelty of the constitutional issues."
