EFF IN THE NEWS

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is challenging the constitutionality of the law granting immunity in a suit against AT&T, Hepting v. AT&T.

EFF also filed a suit against the NSA, Jewel v. NSA, challenging this domestic spying program, which was created by a secret presidential order issued by President George W. Bush in October 2001.  The program allegedly engages in a warrantless and illegal collection of Americans’ telephone and Internet communications from AT&T.  EFF claims that the NSA suit is “aimed at ending the NSA’s dragnet surveillance of millions of ordinary Americans and holding accountable the government officials who illegally authorized it.”
