Why Is The White House Getting Sued?

#1 The ACLU Speaks Up

The ACLU is at it again in trying to protect the freedoms of the U.S. citizens. They are suing the Obama administration over the phone data collection program put in place. This is not the first time the ACLU has had something to say against the NSA. They have filed previous lawsuits against them which were lost against both the Bush and Obama administrations. While their last suit was dismissed, this time they made the argument that the phone data program "violates Americans' constitutional rights of free speech, association, and privacy." They also claim that this data collection could be used in unethical ways. It could give insight into the family lives, religious affiliations and even intimate relationships of the American people. They said it is going to have a "chilling" effect on the people releasing the information.
