Federal judge doesn't buy state secrets argument in NSA wiretap case
Well, it appears Electronic Frontier Foundation's (EFF) lawsuit against AT&T is going ahead. The lawsuit was filed against AT&T for its role in aiding the NSA wiretapping Americans without a warrant. The US government petitioned that the lawsuit should be drop because a trial would divulge State's secrets and could compromise the security of the nation. Judge Vaughn, the state judge who is presiding over the case, doesn't think so and has denied the motion to dismiss the lawsuit. Naturally, the federal government is planning to appeal the decision.
