Whatever the merits of Jim Bell's arguments, it does appear that the
Feds who snooped on him had (sadly, not-difficult-to-obtain) court
authorization.  So I don't see how this ruling would make a
difference, even if it had happened before Bell's self-immolation on
the stand and subsequent conviction. --Declan
