Electronic Frontier Foundation Sues FBI Over National Security Letter Gag Orders

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Investigation on June 7th, asking courts to force the FBI to hand over all surveillance records tied to National Security Letters. The EFF seeks to review the records to determine whether or not the FBI has been complying with US Law dating back to 2015, when the FBI’s use of gag orders in conjunction with NSL’s was ruled “unconstitutional” by US courts.
