NSA’s Wiretaps of an Oregon Charity Ruled Illegal

NLG attorneys Steven Goldberg, Ashlee Albies, Tom Nelson, and Zaha Hassan helped represent Al-Haramain, a now defunct Ashland charity. Last week, a federal judged declared the National Security Agency’s warrantless interception of the Oregon Islamic charity’s phone calls to be illegal. The ruling challenges the legality of the Bush administration’s surveillance program.
