The Guardian Discusses Shubert v. Obama

  • June 7, 2013

In an article analyzing the U.S. government’s use of the “state secrets privilege” in several lawsuits alleging the government’s secret collection of the communications of millions of its citizens, The Guardian took note of ECBAWM’s warrantless wiretapping case, filed in 2006. In Shubert v. Obama, ECBAWM represents four individuals and a putative class of tens of millions of innocent Americans whose communications were unlawfully copied and intercepted by the National Security Agency. The plaintiffs in the case are represented by ECBAWM’s Ilann M. Maazel and Adam Pulver.
