Supreme Court Snubs Privacy Group, NSA-Verizon Case

The U.S. Supreme Court this week refused to get involved in the scandal surrounding the National Security Agency and Verizon, ignoring a privacy group’s attempts to get its case heard by the nation’s highest court.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center was attempting to go straight to the top, skipping over lower courts because it said the Supreme Court’s justices are the only ones who can overrule the Foreign Intelligence Surveillence Court. That court has said that the NSA can collect phone records of millions of Americans, The Wall Street Journal reported.

There are still many lawsuits regarding this issue circulating around the country.
