+ - Google Asks Federal Judge to Challenge National Security Letters->

Submitted by mk1004
mk1004 (2488060) writes "From the Washington Post comes an article that says Google is petitioning the court, two weeks after the U.S. District Judge in San Francisco ruled that NSLs are unconstitutional because they “violate the First Amendment and separation of powers principles.” It reported that Google filed a petition to “set aside the legal process,” citing a provision that allows judges to modify or deny NSLs that are “unreasonable, oppressive, or otherwise unlawful.” EFF attorney Matt Zimmerman was quoted as saying “the people who are in the best position to challenge the practice are people like Google. So far no one has really stood up for their users.”"
