Following up on the ECJ ruling of May 30.

The Times law section has this article analyzing the ruling.

I agree, that the ruling was not necessarily a victory for privacy, as it was based on the Commissions lack of legal foundation.

The ruling is, however, important because it forces a political decision on the need to allow passenger information to be transferred from airlines to the US government. Unfortunately such a decision can (according to the article) be taken by the Council without consulting the Parliament.
