Civil rights groups ask to end warrantless surveillance program
News6 | November 18, 2006
DETROIT Eight civil rights groups and other organizations want to reinstate a court ruling declaring the Bush administration's warrantless surveillance program illegal.
They filed a friend-of-the-court brief today with a federal appeals court. The groups argue that warrantless surveillance has historically infringed upon civil rights organizations' free-speech rights.
The federal government is appealing an August ruling by U-S District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in Detroit. She said the surveillance program is unconstitutional because it violates the separation of powers and the rights to free speech and privacy.
The program has been allowed to continue while the Bush administration appeals Taylor's ruling.
