U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Presiding Judge James Boasberg ruled the Federal Bureau of Investigation and National Security Agency violated laws and court orders as they conducted their surveillance activities, The Washington Post reports. Boasberg found the two agencies illicitly gathered data under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The judge's ruling was made last December and released to the public Sept. 4. Despite the decision, Boasberg approved new rules allowing federal agencies to continue using Section 702.
