Congress last year gave retroactive immunity to the providers for allowing the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on callers after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, but civil liberties groups and class-action lawyers didn’t let that ruling stop their court opposition.

The ruling hits hard groups including the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the ACLU, organizations that contend the wiretapping and the immunity law are unconstitutional and invade citizens’ privacy.
EFF leaders said they will appeal the lawsuits’ dismissal.
