U.S. Chamber of Commerce: Companies Should Be Allowed To Break Law if Helping Government

July 18, 2007

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is arguing to a federal appeals court that laws shouldn't apply to companies that help the government in the name of homeland security and that the court should dismiss a suit against AT&T for allegedly violating federal privacy laws in helping the government spy on Americans without warrants...

The group filed an amicus brief with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals last month, as the court prepares to hear an appeal of a lower court decision allowing a suit against AT&T by the Electronic Frontier Foundation to proceed, despite the government's attempt to squash the case by arguing that the case will imperil national security.
