Feds sue states to protect NSA spying

Officials sued over phone records access, by Mark Sherman, Associated Press Writer, Wed Jun 14, 2006.

The federal government sued the New Jersey attorney general and other state officials Wednesday to stop them from seeking information about telephone companies’ cooperation with the National Security Agency.

The unusual filing in U.S. District Court in Trenton, N.J., is the latest effort by federal authorities to halt legal proceedings aimed at revealing whether and how often AT&T, Verizon and other phone companies have provided customer records to the NSA without a court order.
