Wikipedia sues the National Security Agency March 12, 2015

Wikipedia has filed a lawsuit against the National Security Agency and the Justice Department, seeking to stop the government’s mass surveillance of the internet.

From Wikipedia Is Suing the NSA – NationalJournal.com:

Wikipedia filed a lawsuit on Tuesday challenging the constitutionality of the National Security Agency’s mass surveillance of Internet communications, a sudden and striking challenge that comes nearly two years after Edward Snowden’s disclosures first began.

The online encyclopedia’s suit against the NSA and the Justice Department claims that the U.S. government’s mass surveillance regime threatens freedom of speech under the First Amendment and the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable search and seizures.
