The Justice Department has two weeks to decide whether to appeal or change its handling of an espionage case after a judge’s refusal to bar references to classified information.

Prosecutors had sought to compel lawyers and witnesses to use only coded references when referring to classified material in the trial of two lobbyists for Israel. Judge T.S. Ellis III has ruled the plan is unconstitutional, the Washington Post reports.

Steven J. Rosen and Keith Weissman are accused of conspiring to disclose secret military information to the press and Israel, the story says.
