This is probably only the first in many similar lawsuits to come
The first lawsuit that has PRISM at its roots has already been filed. Former US prosecutor Larry Klayman and the parents of the killed Navy Seal Team VI member Michael Strange have filed a lawsuit against President Obama, the NSA and several players involved in the scandal.After news about PRISM was published, the public backlash grew in intensity. Now, a few days later, the first lawsuit has already taken shape, TorrentFreak reports.
The revelations turned online privacy into the hottest subject around. The NSA and the US Government are those who have received the heaviest criticism while companies that aided the program aren’t faring any better.
Now, according to the case that has recently been filed, PRISM participants are being accused of violating the constitutional right to privacy, free speech and association, as well as the right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures, among other illegal acts.
Both Klayman and Michael Strange’s parents are demanding compensation.
