A privacy rights group is suing the Obama administration over its NSA surveillance program, the USA Today reports.
The Electronic Privacy Center has taken the case to the Supreme Court to argue the program is unconstitutional.
In its petition to the court, the group said the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ‘exceeded its statutory jurisdiction when it ordered production of millions of domestic telephone records that cannot plausibly be relevant to an authorized investigation.”
The Obama administration already is catching staunch criticism for its widespread surveillance of phone and email records.
The NSA leaker, Edward Snowden, is believed to still be in a Moscow airport in legal limbo.
