WASHINGTON — Allan Kornblum, 71, a Florida federal magistrate, an ex-FBI agent who worked on civil rights cases in the 1960s, and a Justice Department official credited with writing key passages of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act  (FISA), died last week of cancer in Gainesville, Fla., the Washington Post reported.

Kornblum, a former New York City cop, worked for the FBI in the 1960s and joined the U.S. Justice Department in 1975 to “write the FBI’s guidelines for domestic security and counterintelligence work,” wrote Post reporter Patricia Sullivan.
