Judge Backs EFF In Telco Eavesdropping Case
In his order, Judge Walker has ordered that telecommunications companies must preserve any evidence of collaborating with the government in illegal spying on ordinary Americans.
Walker ordered telecommunications companies to halt any routine destruction of documents or to arrange for the preservation of accurate copies. On December 14, companies that engaged in these practices must provide the court with confirmation that the court's order has been carried out. The court order did not require the government or the carriers to reveal whether or not they had any relevant evidence.
The U.S. government and the carriers opposed the preservation motion on "state secrets" grounds.
