Telecom firm says "No" to FBI surveillance demands
A minor miracle occurred early last year when the FBI tried to shake down a phone company for customer records during an investigation: the company said no.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the affair has been dragged to court and is tightly cloaked in secrecy.
The phone company's lawyer declined to identify which phone company he's representing, while the telecom employee who received the FBI's national security letter (NSL) demanding customer records has been legally barred from acknowledging either the resulting court case or the letter's existence to just about anyone beyond the company's lawyers.
