Judge Refuses to Halt Privacy Suit Over State Secrets
Chief District Judge Vaughn Walker of the Northern District of California refused today to dismiss a class action lawsuit against AT&T over company cooperation in government surveillance of citizens. The government had invoked state secrets as a way of preventing the suit from going forward. The judge ruled that the nature of the suit was hardly a secret at this point and that allowing the parties to go forward at this time would not reveal any state secrets nor help terrorists.
Somewhere in a secret location is a government official gnashing his teeth.
