Obama administration drowning in lawsuits filed over NSA surveillance

Attorneys for the Electronic Frontier Foundation have sued the Obama administration and are demanding the White House stop the dragnet surveillance programs operated by the National Security Agency.

Both the White House and Congress have weighed in on the case of Edward Snowden and the revelations he’s made by leaking National Security Agency documents. Now the courts are having their turn to opine, and with opportunities aplenty.

Day by day, new lawsuits waged against the United States government are being filed in federal court, and with the same regularity President Barack Obama and the preceding administration are being charged with vast constitutional violations alleged to have occurred through the NSA spy programs exposed by Mr. Snowden.

I think the Federal

I think the Federal Government should send every American a $10,000 check for punitive damages. If they want to spy on our communications and collect our data, they need to get a warrant. This is the only way that corporation is going to learn its lesson.



Rand has done a good job

of bringing his suit but what he needs to do is to go after some $$$$ for the plaintiffs (if or when) they win. That will get his petition rockin and a rollin.

beyond hope?

Government owns the courts tho,,

they can just decided to throw out/ignore all these suits. That's what you get when a gov't takes over the legal system.

This can't possibly be true

I watched the MSM all day and the only thing of significance going on in the country is the aftermath of the Trayvon case.
