San Jose Mercury News Features Op-Ed by EFF Attorney

On Sunday, the San Jose Mercury News published EFF Senior Staff Attorney Kurt Opsahl's comprehensive op-ed about Hepting v. AT&T, EFF's landmark case against the telecom giant. The article concisely illuminates the ideologies swirling beneath the battle being waged in D.C. -- a conflict between the preservation of fundamental, constitutional principles and an unprecedented expansion of presidential power:

The Hepting case, along with companion cases pending in District Court, represent the country's best hope to test the administration's extreme view of executive power in the crucible of judicial scrutiny, and to allow the courts to determine whether we are truly a nation governed by law or by people.
