Senator Chris Dodd Takes Stand Against Telecom Immunity

In the face of news that the Senate Intelligence Committee intends to approve new surveillance legislation that includes immunity for telecoms that participated in the NSA's illegal domestic surveillance program, reported in both the Washington Post and the New York Times, Senator Chris Dodd has taken a stand: he will be putting a "hold" on any such legislation, to prevent it from being considered by the broader Senate. EFF commends Senator Dodd for standing up for Americans' privacy rights and demanding that companies that broke the law be held accountable.
