Today in the Washington Post, Marc Zwillinger explains how the proposed addition of electronic communication transaction records to the list of items law enforcement can seek with a national security letter could open a significant amount of Internet activity to government surveillance without judicial authorization, including Web 2.0 and social media.  The article, “White House Proposal Would Ease FBI Access to Records of Internet Activity” can be found here.

He was also quoted in a New York Post article, “Trial ‘bugs’ on Wall Street” with regard to the admissibility of  surveillance evidence in the criminal trial of Raj Rajaratnam, the Galleon Group founder accused of insider trading.
