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 requiring the government to provide classified documents in camera so the court may determine whether the state secret privilege applies to plaintiffs' discovery requests.
