Federal Judge Orders Government to Stop Terrorism Investigation of Charity

We previously reported that a federal district court judge concluded the federal government had violated the constitutional rights of KindHearts for Charitable Development, a Muslim charity, when the government froze the charity's assets in 2005 and so prevented it from adequately defending itself against allegations of ties to terrorism.  USA Today reportedlate last month that the same judge has ordered the federal government to halt its investigation into whether KindHearts should be deemed a terrorist organization, apparently effectively preventing the government from labeling the charity a "specially designated global terrorist."
