The Hon. James E. Baker Appointed to US Department of Justice Data Protection Review Court
Attorney General Merrick B. Garland recently held a formal investiture ceremony for the Data Protection Review Court (DPRC) at the U.S. Justice Department. The Hon. James E. Baker, professor of law, director of the Institute for Security Policy and Law and professor of public administration in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, was formally sworn in as one of eight judges on the DPRC.
Last October, the attorney general issued regulations creating the DPRC within the Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties at the Department of Justice. The DPRC serves as the second level of the new redress process established by the president through Executive Order 14086, which also strengthened other safeguards for U.S. signals intelligence activities.
The DPRC will independently review determinations made by the civil liberties protection officer of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in response to qualifying complaints sent by individuals through appropriate public authorities that allege certain violations of U.S. law in the conduct of U.S. signals intelligence activities.
