The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled 6-3 that the U.S. government can claim a privilege of secrecy even if the information is not a secret.
The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the government may invoke the “state secrets” privilege to block former U.S. contractors from testifying about the now well-known waterboarding and torture of prisoners held at CIA sites in Poland.
By a 6-3 vote, the justices said the U.S. government can claim a privilege of secrecy even if there is no secret.
