Government Can Spy On You, No Warrants Needed: Court

(Toke of the Town) The United States federal government can spy on the communications Americans without warrants and without fear of being sued, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday. The decision reversed the one and only case that ever successfully challenged former President George W. Bush’s Terrorist Surveillance Program.

"This case effectively brings to an end the plaintiffs’ ongoing attempts to hold the executive branch responsible for intercepting telephone conversations without judicial authorization," wrote a three-judge panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals [PDF]…

That means that Americans cannot sue their own government for illegally spying on them, even if their Constitutional rights have been violated by the U.S. breaking its own laws on wiretapping.
