Discuss.

Please only vote on what you think would happen under the current judges, not what you want to happen.

Option 1 would be the ruling, Option 2 is what should happen.

Option 1, most likely 9-0 although I could see Thomas or one of the liberals dissenting.

The PATRIOT Act as a whole would not be a court case. It could only be challenged on a specific grounds, for a case that would only deal with those elements of the law. In fact it has been, in Holder vs Humanitarian Law Project, and the court upheld restrictions on communications with terrorist groups, 6-3.
