San Francisco – The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) Thursday challenged the constitutionality of a law aimed at granting retroactive immunity to telecommunications companies that participated in the president’s illegal domestic wiretapping program.

In a brief filed in the U.S. District Court in San Francisco, EFF argues that the flawed FISA Amendments Act (FAA) violates the federal government’s separation of powers as established in the Constitution and robs innocent telecom customers of their rights without due process of law.

It does my heart good to know that somebody, somewhere in our fast-becoming-fascist country has the guts and the know-how to stand up to the bullies in Washington.

To EFF: Give ‘em a punch in the nose for me, too.
