* Center for Constitutional Rights et al v. Obama et al. (N.D. Cal. Jan. 31, 2011) (granting summary judgment to defendants)

A lawsuit initiated by CCR against the Bush Administration back in 2006 was dismissed on Monday by Judge Vaughn Walker in a 22-page opinion posted here. The plaintiffs argued that the warrantless/terrorist surveillance program undertaken by the Bush Administration may have resulted in illegal monitoring of the phones of CCR’s attorneys, and that this resulted in various constitutional and statutory violations. Judge Walker’s opinion sided with the government in concluding that the plaintiffs lack standing to assert their claims.
