EFF to Present Key Telecommunications Surveillance Argument Friday
The government is appealing U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker's decision not to dismiss Hepting v. AT&T, EFF's case accusing AT&T of collaborating with the NSA in the illegal electronic surveillance. The government has argued that all proceedings before Judge Walker in Hepting -- and in more than 40 other NSA-related cases against additional telecommunications companies transferred to Walker's court -- should be stayed pending the outcome of that appeal.
Also Friday, Judge Walker will hear arguments on whether motions to dismiss should be re-litigated in all of the remaining telecom surveillance cases against Verizon, MCI (now part of Verizon) Sprint, BellSouth (now being absorbed into AT&T and others, or if the Hepting v. AT&T Order should apply to those as well.
