The federal government is urging an appeals court to dismiss a lawsuit challenging President Bush's domestic eavesdropping program, warning that disclosure of such activities could compromise national security...

The court filings on Friday are part of the government's appeal of U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker's decision last year to keep the Electronic Frontier Foundation's lawsuit alive. Walker ruled that warrantless eavesdropping has been so widely reported that there appears to be no danger of spilling secrets.
