Newly disclosed documents address the case of computer programmer David House who had several electronic devices seized by border control following his involvement with Bradley Manning.

The documents were released after a long ongoing court battle that House initiated against the U.S. government with help from the American Civil Liberties Union.

The documents reveal a troubling amount of surveillance and planning to ensure that House's personal effects and information would be seized without judicial approval and without being charged with any criminal activity.
