I love the EFF.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has filed a lawsuit over a ruling by the secretive Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). That ruling found parts of a classified Department of Justice (DOJ) surveillance program to be in violation of the Fourth Amendment. The court’s decision only became public after a letter from the NSA to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) mentioned it and EFF’s lawsuit is designed to draw attention to the ruling and the government’s behavior.

The FISC ruled in EFF’s favor the day after former government contractor Edward Snowden revealed the NSA’s massive collection of phone records, making it the first known case in which a non-government entity has prevailed in such a case. DOJ has until July 1 to respond to EFF’s request for information on the ruling.
