AT&T Case: Game On in Ninth Circuit

As expected, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has granted the petition to appeal Judge Walker's Order Denying the Government and AT&T's Motions to Dismiss in our case against AT&T for its illegal cooperation and collaboration with the government's spying program. Granting the petition allows the parties to brief the legal issues, but does not reach the merits.

We are looking forward to defending Walker's decision to deny the motions to dismiss before the appeals court, while pushing forward with our claims in the District Court at the November 17 Case Management Conference.
