Privacy Group to Ask Supreme Court to Halt NSA Surveillance Program

Electronic Privacy Information Center says only SCOTUS can address this problem


The Obama administration will also have to defend its National Security Agency surveillance programs in court.

A privacy rights group plans to ask the Supreme Court on Monday to stop the NSA phone surveillance program that collects the telephone records of millions of Americans.

It's the latest in a string of lawsuits over NSA activities.

The Obama team is also under political fire for the phone and Internet surveillance programs operated by the NSA, details of which have been leaked by former government contractor Edward Snowden.
