SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ā€” The Obama administration is releasing hundreds of previously classified documents detailing activities of the long-secret spy court that authorizes domestic surveillance programs.

In a court filing last week, the U.S. Department of Justice said it will turn over the documents to the Electronic Frontier Foundation by today. The release aims to partially settle a lawsuit the group filed for access to court orders, administration memos and other information government officials relied on to design and implement a domestic surveillance program.

The EFF’s lawsuit against telecommunication companies for allegedly participating in the surveillance was tossed out when Congress granted the industry immunity. The group’s lawsuit languished for years until former intelligence worker Edward Snowden released detailed information about the domestic surveillance program earlier this year, reigniting public debate and prompting widespread calls for more public information about the surveillance programs and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
