The ‘Repeal Immunity’ Movement Begins Today

Today, EFF Senior Staff Attorney Kevin Bankston was invited to guest-blog at The Hill.com's Congress Blog on EFF's plans in the wake of the recent surveillance law overhaul:

Our long war against warrantless wiretapping has only just begun, and we will not stop until we get that legal ruling we’ve been fighting for. Wednesday we only lost a battle, not the war, and EFF’s struggle to hold the White House and the telecoms accountable for their lawbreaking will continue on multiple fronts — starting with a constitutional challenge to the immunity provisions...

While duking it out over immunity in the courts, EFF will also continue its fight in Washington, working in the next session of Congress — a Congress likely to be much different in its composition than today’s, and working with a different president — to wipe the stain of the FAA’s immunity provisions off the books.
