(AP) The federal government says it will declassify parts of a 2008 secret court order that required Yahoo to turn over customer data under the National Security Agency's PRISM data-gathering program.


In a filing Thursday with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the Justice Department said that the declassification would make possible the publication of "much of the court's opinion and order."


But the department said that some of the information in the opinion must remain classified and would be redacted.


Thursday's ruling came after the presiding judge on the court ordered the government to conduct a "declassification review" of the 2008 order.


The release of the opinion had been sought by Yahoo.
