On January 15, 2009, the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review published an unclassified version of its opinion in In Re: Directives Pursuant to Section 105B of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, 551 F.3d 1004 (Foreign Intel. Surv. Ct. Rev. 2008).  The classified version of the opinion was issued on August 22, 2008, following a challenge by Yahoo! Inc. to directives issued under the Protect America Act of 2007.

On September 11, 2014, following a renewed declassification review, the Executive Branch publicly released various documents from this litigation, including legal briefs and additional sections of the 2008 FISC-R opinion, with appropriate redactions to protect national security information.
