Civil liberties lost since Sept. 11. The Lawyers Committee for Human Rights has released a detailed report chronicling actions taken by the United States government since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 that it says have gradually eroded basic human rights protections, including fundamental guarantees that have been central to the U.S. constitutional system for more than 200 years.

I actually heard about this report last week through the law-lib listserv.  I want to recommend that other libraries do what I did:  print out the report, send it to your copy center for binding, and add it to your collection.  Folks will want to read this stuff at some point, if not now.  On the main page is also a link to a PowerPoint presentation of a chronology of changes to U.S. law, which I also added to the collection.  It's now also available in PDF.  Finally, the main page contains a link to a PDF list of court cases related to Sept. 11.

Senate Judiciary Committee holds surveillance hearing.  The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing Tuesday morning on the USA PATRIOT Act and the authorization of secret wiretaps and searches under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

You can find links to the prepared statements by Senators Leahy and Hatch and the witnesses at http://judiciary.senate.gov/hearing.cfm?id=398.
