Civil liberties groups and privacy advocates in the United States rejoiced when U.S. Federal District Court Judge Richard Leon ruled last month that the NSA's collection of bulk telephony metadata is likely a violation of the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. However, their joy was short-lived. Later in the month, in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union against such collection on constitutional grounds, U.S. District Court Judge William Pauley of the Southern District Court of New York ruled that it is legal.

I'm not sure what VanDyke means when he says, "Each individual "is oddly better protected" when the NSA collects the metadata of phone calls made by millions of Americans because any individual's data is lost in compilation, Van Dyke pointed out."
