Court declines NSA case

7 Apr, 2014

Justices decline lawsuit that challenges the U.S. National Security Agency’s collection of Americans’ phone records. A conservative activist filed the case after a lower court stayed a ruling that the program is unconstitutional. The court denies request by activist and former federal prosecutor Larry Klayman, along with Charles and Mary Strange, to immediately hear their case against U.S. President Barack Obama, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, NSA Director Keith Alexander, Verizon Communications and Roger Vinson. Neither judge who signed the order allowing the surveillance nor Klayman comments.
