"The ruling marks the first court decision to declare a part of the post-September 11, 2001 anti-terrorism statute unconstitutional, said David Cole, a Georgetown University law professor who argued the case on behalf of the Humanitarian Law Project.

In a ruling handed down late Friday and made available Monday, U.S. District Judge Audrey Collins said the ban on providing "expert advice or assistance" is impermissibly vague, in violation of the First and Fifth Amendments. "

" Part of Patriot Act Ruled Unconstitutional "

I was thinking they were both ( PA 1&2 ) COMPLETELY Unconstitutional. Saying they are partially Unconstitutional, it's saying they are allmost Constitutional.
It's just another way to say PA1&2 are legals.

"(CNN) -- E-mail users are being warned about a new identity theft scam that tries to snare victims by accusing them of violating the government's anti-terrorism Patriot Act. "
