The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a 2007 lower court decision in its ruling in Wilson v. Central Intelligence Agency, which barred the former CIA officer from revealing the length of her tenure with the agency in her 2007 memoir. The three-judge panel said that the CIA made a good argument to keep the information secret and that it would not "second-guess" the agency's decision. AAN was part of a group that filed an amicus brief supporting Wilson in the case.
