July 6, 2014 by legitgov

U.S. tightens security on electronics at overseas airports 06 Jul 2014 The U.S. Transportation Security Administration will not allow cellphones or other electronic devices on U.S.-bound planes at some overseas airports if the devices are not charged up, the agency said on Sunday.

As part of the increased scrutiny at certain airports, security agents may ask travelers to turn on their electronic devices at checkpoints and if they do not have power, the devices will not be allowed on planes, the TSA said.

July 6, 2014 by legitgov

Students Joining Battle to Upend Laws on Voter ID --College Students Claim Voter ID Laws Discriminate Based on Age 06 Jul 2014 Civil rights groups have spent a decade fighting requirements that voters show photo identification, arguing that this discriminates against African-Americans, Hispanics and the poor. This week in a North Carolina courtroom, another group will make its case that such laws are discriminatory: college students. Joining a challenge to a state law alongside the N.A.A.C.P., the American Civil Liberties Union and the Justice Department, lawyers for seven college students and three voter-registration advocates are making the novel constitutional argument that the law violates the 26th Amendment, which lowered the voting age to 18 from 21.

CIA employee: 'I submitted a FOIA and it basically destroyed my entire career'

July 6, 2014 by legitgov

CIA employee: 'I submitted a FOIA and it basically destroyed my entire career' --His request set in motion a harrowing sequence. 04 Jul 2014 His CIA career included assignments in Africa, Afghanistan and Iraq, but the most perilous posting for Jeffrey Scudder turned out to be a two-year stint in a sleepy office that looks after the agency's historical files. It was there that Scudder discovered a stack of articles, hundreds of histories of long-dormant conflicts and operations that he concluded were still being stored in secret years after they should have been shared with the public. To get them released, Scudder submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act -- a step that any citizen can take, but one that is highly unusual for a CIA employee. Four years later, the CIA has released some of those articles and withheld others. It also has forced Scudder out.

NSAssociate Google begins yanking news articles in Europe 03 Jul 2014 Should Google be the arbiter on what is and is not publicly available on the Web? [Well, we know they do that *daily* with the CLG Newsletter, that's for sure!] What happens when a person's request to be anonymous conflicts with the freedom of the press? These are some of the questions being raised as Google begins to remove search results in its first implementation of the European Union's so-called right-to-be-forgotten ruling. The ruling lets people in the European Union submit a form to Google requesting that they be removed from its search results if they feel the information on them is outdated or reveals personal details they want to keep private. A team at Google then determines whether that person's corporation's right to be anonymous is more important than keeping that information front and center in its search results for ease of public access.
