Carter Ledyard Amicus Brief Helps ACLU Prevail in Major Court of Appeals Ruling
As reported on the front page of today’s New York Times, on May 7, 2015, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that the National Security Agency’s dragnet collection of American citizens’ domestic telephone metadata was against the law. The case, brought by the ACLU, included an amicus brief authored by CL&M partners Stephen L. Kass, Gary D. Sesser and Michael Shapiro on behalf of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, that opposed the position asserted by the NSA. The nearly 100-page decision from the 2nd Circuit reversed the lower court which had ruled in the government’s favor and remanded for further proceedings consistent with its opinion.
