Intrusion of Civil Liberties

Hat tip to
for linking to the following article.
Verizon sued for giving NSA phone records
TRENTON, N.J. -- Two New Jersey public interest lawyers sued Verizon Communications Inc. for $5 billion Friday, claiming the phone carrier violated privacy laws by turning over phone records to the National Security Agency for a secret government surveillance program...

...This is the largest and most vast intrusion of civil liberties we've ever seen in the United States," Afran said of the NSA program...

...Afran said that he and Mayer will also ask for documents dealing with the origination of the program and President Bush's role in the program...
*pessimistically speaking*, It probably won't do any good, but I was cheered to read the article.
