The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed a class-action lawsuit against AT&T on January 31, 2006, accusing the telecom giant of violating the law and the privacy of its customers by collaborating with the National Security Agency (NSA) in its massive, illegal program to wiretap and data-mine Americans' communications. In May, 2006, many other cases were filed against a variety of telecommunications companies. Subsequently, the Multi-District Litigation Panel of the federal courts transferred approximately 40 cases to the Northern District of California federal court.

This is the MOTION OF AMICI CURIAE LAW PROFESSORS FOR LEAVE TO FILE BRIEF IN SUPPORT OF (1) THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF § 802 OF THE FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE SURVEILLANCE ACT OF 1978 AMENDMENTS ACT OF 2008, AND (2) THE MOTION OF THE UNITED STATES TO DISMISS (Dkt. 469); [PROPOSED] ORDER.
