US senator sues President Obama to stop NSA metadata dragnet
Mark Rumold, an attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, echoed this sentiment.
“I don't think it's going to change much legally, but it certainly adds something atmospherically to have a senator lead a class action against the president and the intelligence community,” he told Ars. “I just hope this doesn't distract from the great work Senator Paul has done advocating for NSA reform in the Senate. I still think that's where he's uniquely positioned to make his most valuable contribution to reining in the NSA.”
