GOP Revives Telco Immunity Push
U.S. House Republicans are circulating a petition to force a new vote on legal immunity for telcos that aided government electronic surveillance.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, the co-lead counsel in many of the civil cases, maintains that the carriers broke the law by providing the National Security Agency with the full content of billions of e-mails, text messages and VOIP (voice over IP) calls. The EFF says it is an issue for the courts to decide.
