(AP) Yahoo has won a court fight that could help the public learn more about the government's efforts to obtain data from Internet users.


The U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court reviews government requests to spy on individuals. It ruled Monday that information should be made public about a 2008 case that ordered Yahoo to turn over customer data.


The order requires the government to review which portions of the opinion, briefs and arguments can be declassified and report back to the court by July 29.


The government sought the information from Yahoo Inc. under the National Security Agency's Prism data-gathering program. Details of the secret program were disclosed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who has fled the country.


A Yahoo spokeswoman says the company believes the decision will help inform public discussion about the government's surveillance programs.
