Supreme Court Won't Hear Challenge to NSA's Collection of Phone Records

Without comment, the court declined to hear the case brought by the Electronic Privacy Information Center.

Lawsuits brought by other groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union and the Electronic Frontier Foundation challenging the controversial NSA program will continue to move forward in federal court.
