National Security Law (5461)
Spring 2010
Exam Blog

I will post questions from students here so everyone can benefit from the answers. I will also include exam tips and clarifications of questions. The blog will close the evening before the exam. New material will be added at the top.


Clarification of question from Chapter 35:

Detroit Free Press v. Ashcroft, 303 F.3d 681 (6th Cir. 2002)

Basically the same facts as North Jersey Media

How did the 6th Cir rule? - (Opposite of the result in North Jersey Media)

Can these cases be reconciled?

Did the United States Supreme Court accept cert in either case?

Where does that leave us?


Are You Following A Bot? - a must read, the last bit talks about the government using social network bots to hack twitter and facebook.


Now we know what that iphone position log was for.


Correction to our class discussion Tuesday. Ms. Middleton was correct - the Office of Legal Counsel is in DOJ and is separate from the White House Counsel's Office. The separation was less obvious during the Bush II presidency because the Vice-President controlled the OLC. The torture memos and other OLC national security memos are here.
