Verizon case won’t be closed for long time to come

Each of these lawsuits has a different strategic focus, but all of them share a fundamental argument: The government’s indiscriminate collection of Americans’ phone records violates the Fourth Amendment’s warrant requirement and its prohibition of “unreasonable” searches and seizures. Some lawsuits, like the ACLU’s and the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s, also claim that the program violates the First Amendment’s guarantee of the right to freely associate. Some further contend that the program is not authorized by the text of Section 215, which the law’s author, Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner Jr., Wisconsin Republican, has forcefully made clear.
