Wave of Legal Challenges to NSA Electronic Surveillance

The revelations by U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden that the National Security Agency has been conducting widespread snooping against pretty much everyone, everywhere, all the time has provoked more than just political and diplomatic fallout.

As can be expected, there are several new lawsuits.

The American non-profit investigative journalism website Pro Publica has created the NSA Surveillance Lawsuit Tracker that lists the "key legal challenges to [U.S.] government surveillance and secrecy" since 2006. The last lawsuit added to the list was filed on July 8th.
For a Canadian take on government whistleblowers, I recommend the work of the NGO FAIR (Federal Accountability Initiative for Reform).

FAIR produces a monthly newsletter, the most recent issue being from June 2013. One of the articles is Canada slow to protect whistleblowing spies, soldiers.
