Wiretap Suits Against AT&T Dismissed

The wiretapping suits against AT&T and other telecoms, pending in San Francisco, have been dismissed.  The suits alleged constitutional violations for letting the United States have access to the various networks without a court order.  Judge Vaughn Walker dismissed the suits noting the companies were protected under the FISA amendments signed into law in July of 2008.  The Electronic Frontier Foundation, who provided legal assistance to plaintiffs, said it would appeal.  Their statement is here, and includes links to Judge Walker's order.  More details in Channel Web.
