NSA Phone Surveillance Faces Fresh Court Test 31 Oct 2014 The National Security Agency’s collection of Americans’ phone records will face a fresh test this coming week when a Washington, D.C., appeals-court panel hears arguments over the surveillance program. Tuesday’s arguments are just one of three federal appeals-court challenges to the NSA’s gathering of millions of Americans’ phone records–an issue that could eventually reach the U.S. Supreme Court. The cases, which include two separate lawsuits in New York and San Francisco, were prompted by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s revelations last year detailing the scope of U.S. government surveillance.
