EPIC wants to sue NSA at the Supreme Court


#1

The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) has asked the Supreme Court to allow it to sue the US government over NSA spying; EPIC argues that only the Supreme Court has jurisdiction over the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, and so they should be able to start with the Supremes and skip the lower courts.

I'm in. Where do I donate to support this lawsuit against the NSA?


#5

http://epic.org/ has a link "donate" in the main menu. The online form allows you to state where you want the money to go to, but lacks a NSA lawsuit option, so you can probably send them a cheque with a cover-letter, or just trust that they will spend it wisely without targeting the donation

But if it's secret, then how do they know about it?
How do we know about it for that matter?
I'm told that you should only tell secrets to people who already know about it. Does that mean I shouldn't have read this?

You're already signed up. It's in the BoingBoing TOS, and they have your information on file.

Oh good, I'm sure Scalia and Thomas will be stalwart defenders of individual rights, this time.
