Twitter Inc’s lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice over surveillance may not need to proceed following the recent passage of the USA Freedom Act, a U.S. judge said in an order on Thursday.

The ruling, from U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers in Oakland, California, comes in a lawsuit in which Twitter seeks to publicly disclose more information about requests for user information it receives from U.S. authorities.

Gonzalez Rogers asked both sides for more arguments about whether the case should proceed.
