Justice Department Blocks EFF Evidence In Wiretapping Case
from the we'd-rather-you-didn't dept
Earlier this year, the EFF sued AT&T for allowing the NSA access to its databases, for the sake of the NSA’s infamous wiretapping efforts. As the EFF went to file its motion for a preliminary injunction against AT&T, it appears that the Justice Department — who is not a party to this case — took it upon itself to ask the EFF to hold back some of the evidence. This is despite the fact that none of the evidence is classified and the EFF was providing the evidence under seal to the court, in order to keep it secret. Of course, doing so is only going to raise interest concerning what’s actually in that evidence.
