United States v. Butenko: Executive Authority to Conduct Warrantless Wiretaps for Foreign Security Purposes
In United States v. Butenko, the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit held that the executive branch is not required to obtain a warrant before conducting wiretapping for foreign security purposes. This note examines the court's opinion and contrasts it to the case of United States v. United States District Court in which the Supreme Court held that warrants must be obtained for domestic security surveillance.
