Judge Royce Lamberth spoke about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). The FISC provides oversight for government surveillance of spies, terrorists, and others who serve as agents of foreign powers. The FISC considers surveillance and physical search orders from the Department of Justice and U.S. intelligence agencies. Since Congress established the FISC in 1978 more than 12,000 applications for wiretaps and covert searches have been approved and one request has been denied. This was the first time an acting Judge had spoken about the FISC in public. Judge Lamberth was appointed presiding judge of the FISC in 1995 by Chief Justice William Rehnquist. Judge Lamberth’s remarks were given before the University of Texas Law School Alumni Association. Following his remarks, he responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
