The EFF and AT&T are heading to court over allegations that the phone company violated the privacy of its customers
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is currently sueing AT&T for helping the National Security Agency (NSA) execute wiretaps on American citizens without filing warrants. The EFF alledges that not only did AT&T let the NSA intercept and analyze millions of phone calls made by Americans, but the company has also been accused of giving the NSA direct access to databases of communication records.
There is much more on the subject from the EFF Class Action Lawsuit page

The NSA doesn't, but the FBI does. The FBI made threats to my girl friends's dad for not disclosing private information about one of his clients he defended in court. Threats like deporting his illegal immigrant wife (before they got married), jailtime for treason, and excessive phone taps and other methods of surveillance.
We don't mind government agencies wire tapping looking for possible future terrorists, but we do mind these agencies that abuse thier power.
