- A federal district court judge in Virginia has dismissing a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union that challenged the National Security Agency’s mass interception and surveillance of Americans’ communications.
- Siding with the government, the judge ruled Friday that the nine plaintiffs in the case had not plausibly alleged that their communications were being monitored by the NSA.
- The plaintiffs, which included Amnesty International, Wikimedia Foundation, Pen American Center and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), among others, argued the NSA’s use of “upstream” surveillance enabled the government “to collect communications as they transit the internet ‘backbone.’” This has allowed the government to copy and review text-based communication such as emails, search-engine queries and webpages, as well as engage in “about surveillance” allowing the agency to search communications that are about its targets.
- “The court has wrongly insulated the NSA’s spying from meaningful judicial scrutiny,” Patrick Toomey, ACLU National Security Project staff attorney, argued in the case. “The decision turns a blind eye to the fact that the government is tapping into the internet … to spy on millions of Americans. The dismissal … is at odds with an overwhelming public record of warrantless surveillance.”
- He noted that under the agency’s “PRISM” program, it gathered more than 250 million communications a year, as of 2011. In 2014, the government targeted the communications of more than 92,000 individuals, groups, and organizations under a single Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court order.
- “The NSA’s mass surveillance violates our clients’ constitutional rights to privacy, freedom of speech, and freedom of association, and it poses a grave threat to a free internet and a free society,” Ashley Gorski, staff attorney at the ACLU, said in a press statement. “The private communications of innocent people don’t belong in government hands.”

- So far, over 680,000 migrants and refugees have crossed to Europe by sea so far this year, fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and Asia,
