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

I have no problems with the wiretaps as long as it's been approved by courts.

Exactly!!! Wiretaps are good, I'd just like to have the checks and balances the Constitution says we have. A secret court (FISA) is already set up to approve them and has been used extensively in the past. The current administration chose to cut them out of the loop.
