The EFF has filed suit against Dubya, The NSA and others in an attempt to prevent them spying on citizens via AT&T.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a pro-civil-liberties organization, announced on Thursday that it had filed a lawsuit against the National Security Agency, President George W. Bush and other individuals on behalf of AT&T customers, asking that unconstitutional surveillance stop.Full Story
The lawsuit aims to end the collection of data and wiretapping by the NSA targeting ordinary Americans and hold the architects of the various surveillance initiatives responsible for any violations of the U.S. Constitution, the EFF said in a statement. The lawsuit uses evidence already made public to make its case, since the Bush Administration has not been shy about using the state secrets privilege to quash past lawsuits. A previous lawsuit brought by the EFF against telecommunications giant AT&T is one of the only cases against the surveillance programs to have survived the government's legal tactics.
