NSA Phone Collection Program likely Unconstitutional

NSA Phone Collection Program likely UnconstitutionalThe NSA’s Phone Collection program is now under the microscope. A federal Judge has begun reviewing NSA program and has stated it seems that it run along the same route of the unconstitutional ban on unreasonable search and seizures.

A couple of legal activists have stated that they have proof that the privacy interests far outweigh the governments interest in collecting the information.

“The Plaintiffs have a very significant explanation of privacy in an aggregated collection of their telephone metadata covering the last five years, and the NSA’s Bulk Telephony Metadata Program significantly intrudes on that expectation.”

This lawsuit will be followed by three others over the constitutionality of the program now pending in at least three other federal courts.
