Judge reverses ruling on evidence in Chicago terrorism case

CHICAGO - A federal judge in a Chicago terrorism case has undone a key ruling saying the government needn't divulge whether its investigation relied on expanded phone and Internet surveillance programs.

Adel Daoud denies trying to ignite what he thought was a bomb in Chicago. But if agents used the programs, he says they violated protections against unreasonable searches.

Ex-government contractor Edward Snowden revealed the programs' existence.

Prosecutors argued they won't use evidence derived directly from expanded surveillance at the 19-year-old's trial, so aren't required to disclose if they relied on the programs.
