Judge William Bryson — Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review

It is interesting to note that Senior Judge Bryson of the Federal Circuit is the presiding judge of the three-judge “Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review” which hears appeals from the “Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.”

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court was established by Congress in 1978.  The Court entertains applications made by the United States Government for approval of electronic surveillance, physical search, and certain other forms of investigative actions for foreign intelligence purposes.

Given current events, I wonder if we will hear more about the court in the coming months.
