U.S. Senator (R-Ky) has filed a lawsuit against the NSA and Obama and various Administration officials.

It's generally about the 4th Amendment and seeks to end broad, non-targeted surveillance of Americans' communications, including so-called 'metadata'.

Basically, it's Rand Paul and Freedomworks verses Barack Obama, James Clapper, Keith Alexander, and James Comey.

The suit was filed in Washington D.C.

Let's see what becomes of this.


Rand Paul files class-action suit vs. NSA





Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday officially filed his class-action lawsuit against the Obama administration over National Security Agency data collection, joining with two prominent tea party leaders to make the announcement.

Paul, a libertarian-leaning Kentucky Republican and potential presidential contender, inveighed against NSA surveillance and promised a “historic” lawsuit. He and his allies hope to take the case, which focuses on the NSA’s gathering of telephone metadata, to the Supreme Court.
