Well, that didn't take long: US telecoms sued in California over spying
Lawsuits filed in San Francisco called for punishment of telecom giants AT&T and Verizon for handing customers' phone records to US government spies. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) claimed in lawsuits filed in California state court that the US telecoms secretly provided subscriber information to the National Security Agency (NSA). AT&T and Verizon broke state law by secretly giving the NSA telephone records of millions of California customers, according to the ACLU.
The suit called on the court to declare the telecoms violated privacy rights and to bar the companies from providing the NSA with information about people's telephone calls. The suit also demanded that the companies pay the legal fees involved with the suit, as well as unspecified damages.
