The FISA Court and Its Secrets
The United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, also known as FISC or the FISA Court, was established under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978.

The court is sought by federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the US to gain legal access to private data on those they are currently investigating.
