An appeals court ruled on Friday that the National Security Agency may continue to collect the phone records of millions of Americans, at least until a new law banning the practice goes into effect in November.
The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia lifted an injunction, which had been issued by a 2013 ruling against the N.S.A. program by a lower court but was not in effect, helping clear some of the legal thicket that has grown up around the agency’s so-called bulk phone records collection. The ruling came even though Congress passed a law in June to end the program.
