Electronic Privacy Information Center v. National Security Agency

Defendant.’s Combined Reply And Opposition To Plaintiff.’s Motion For Summary Judgment


EPIC v. NSA FOIA Lawsuit: NSA Will Neither Confirm Nor Deny Communications with Google

In a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by EPIC against the National Security Agency for information about the NSA's relationship with Google, the NSA has replied that "confirming or denying the existence of any such records would reveal information relating to its core functions and activities . . ." EPIC sought the information, including a widely discussed cooperative research agreement between NSA and Google, because the agency's practices would impact the privacy interests of millions of Internet users both in the United States and around the world. The case is EPIC v. NSA, Civ. Action No. 10-1533 (RJL). EPIC has a related release against the NSA concerning the agency's cybersecurity authority.
