The U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments in a Fourth Amendment case involving Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, FCW reports. An Albanian native who is a New York City resident was arrested and charged with providing support to terrorist groups after his emails were obtained under Section 702–sanctioned surveillance in which the man was found to have been communicating with a suspected terrorist. The man’s lawyers are seeking to suppress the evidence, stating the emails were collected without a warrant. The U.S. government claims since it was monitoring another suspect, the collection of the emails was “incidental” and did not require obtaining a warrant.
