We're Listening

The EFF’s suit against AT & T is taking a brief hiatus. Still better than the ACLU’s attempt. Thank God for civil liberty friendly judges,

The ACLU argued that the practice was no longer secret, because numerous news reports had made it clear that phone records had been given to the agency.

But the judge said the news reports amounted to speculation and in no way constituted official confirmation that phone records had been turned over.

Yeah, those newspaper reports were just speculation but if it came out during a court case then I’d believe it. Without the AT&T documents the plantiffs couldn’t prove they had personally been spied on, and without that proof they had no standing.
