San Francisco's EFF fights to protect text messages from police search
The foundation is a civil liberties group that focuses on protecting speech and privacy online. It claims 21,000 dues-paying members in the United States and 851 of them in Washington.
"Text messaging is the 21st Century phone call," EFF said in its briefs. Warrantless interception of such messages threatens "to erode privacy protection to a ubiquitous form of communication in the United States."
