WASHINGTON, D.C. – Well, well, well. It looks like Santa came early this year.

All of that stuff Edward Snowden leaked about the NSA, how the government collects our phone records, has been deemed unconstitutional by a federal judge.

Judge Richard Leon gave the preliminary ruling in a case brought to court by five plaintiffs challenging the questionable practice.

So, there’s more litigation to be had.

Judge Leon is putting off enforcing the government to cut it out for now, since the government is likely to appeal.

But this is expected to be an uphill battle for those on The Hill, Judge Leon basically says he found not one situation in which the NSA’s data collection actually stopped anything bad from happening.

So, if you’re one of the millions of Americans who think this whole thing was a huge invasion of privacy, someone in Washington agrees with you, for once.
