WASHINGTON - July 24 - Initial pretrial and pre-motion conference in ACLU v. Clapper, the American Civil Liberties Union’s lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the NSA’s mass collection of phone records.

It will be the first time the government addresses the NSA surveillance program in court. The ACLU’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking the government’s secret interpretations of Patriot Act Section 215 will also be discussed.
