Judge orders government to make changes to terror watch list .

27 December 2019 .

 A federal judge is ordering the government to make changes to its watch list of more than 1 million people whose inclusion marks them as known or suspected terrorists, but for now he's giving the government latitude to propose the changes as it sees fit .

The order issued last week by U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga in  Alexandria falls short of what a Muslim civil rights group had hoped for when it won a ruling earlier this year that the secret list violates the constitutional rights of those placed on it .

The Council on American-Islamic Relations had asked Trenga to order specific, sweeping changes to the way the government places names on the list and providing a meaningful opportunity for those wrongly included to clear their names .

Instead, Trenga simply told the government to craft its own remedies to bring the list into compliance and to submit those proposals to him for review .

Trenga ordered the government to provide him a status report on its proposed revisions by early February .

Gadeir Abbas, a lawyer for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said he has little hope that the government will on its own propose any meaningful changes .
