Supreme Court rejects warrantless wiretapping case.

"Supreme Court rejects warrantless wiretapping case."

The Supreme Court “has rejected a challenge to the Bush administration’s domestic spying program” brought forth by the American Civil Liberties Union. The court offered “no comment explaining why they turned down the appeal,” which seeks to allow a lawsuit over the warrantless wiretapping program. It was dismissed by a lower court “because the plaintiffs cannot prove their communications have been monitored.”
