In Re: National Security Agency Telecommunications Records Litigation

Order Requesting Supplemental Briefing


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.

This is the court order requesting supplemental briefing as to, "...The parties are directed to address whether section 802 runs afoul of the principle the Supreme Court set forth in Yakus v United States, 321 US 414, 425 (1944).."
