Holy Shit! Sounds like the Electronic Frontier Foundation has the Bush Assministration and AT&T by the short and curlies.
Secret documents that allegedly detail the surveillance of AT&T Inc. phone and e-mail lines under the Bush administration’s domestic spying program can be used in a lawsuit against the telephone giant, a federal judge ruled Wednesday, but the records will remain sealed.
U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker rejected a bid by AT&T to return the records given to the privacy advocate Electronic Frontier Foundation by a former AT&T technician. But Walker said the records would remain under seal until it can be determined whether they reveal trade secrets.
The hearing is the first in a lawsuit challenging the administration’s secretive domestic surveillance program.
