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 here

This isn't about data mining, it's about tapping someones phone. And no, they don't directly tap a "wire", but they do tap the computers that route the calls to where they are supposed to be. So quit trying to play semantic games.

Yes, they should get a warrant anytime they're trying to invade someones privacy. Otherwise I can only assume they didn't have enough evidence to get one.
