25 Aug Lawsuit Filed Against NSA for Warrant-less Surveillance
A Brooklyn man by the name of Agron Hasbajrami is being aided by the ACLU in a lawsuit involving the NSA where the government admitted to accessing the accused’s emails without a warrant.
Hasbajrami pleaded guilty to one of the charges against him. However, he is now asking the Second Circuit Court of Appeals to throw out the evidence illegally obtained by the NSA though its PRISM program.
It was noted that ACLU’s cases in the past against the NSA have failed as the courts say that civil rights organizations do not have the legal standing to sue the intelligence agency. This time however, the ACLU is helping an individual who claims to have been personally harmed by the government’s surveillance.
