Crickets ...

I didn't hear this on the news. I wonder why?

Jul 20, 2006 - SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A federal judge declined motions on Thursday to dismiss a lawsuit against AT&T alleging the firm illegally allowed the U.S. government to monitor phone conversations and e-mail communications.

AT&T asked the court in late April to dismiss the case, and two weeks later the U.S. government also asked the federal judge to dismiss it because of the secrecy of the issue.


I wonder what we'll learn from discovery in this trial. I wouldn't be surprised if the eavesdropping is more widespread and more detailed than we ever imagined.
