Obama Administration Continues To Immunize Treason of Telecoms and Federal Government: Wiretapping Legal Challenge Must Die

http://blog.wired.com/27bstroke6/2009/01/obama-administr.html
SAN FRANCISCO — The Obama administration urged a federal judge on Friday to stay enforcement of a ruling favoring the plaintiffs in a lawsuit challenging President George W. Bush’s warrantless eavesdropping program. Justice Department special counsel Anthony Coppolino told U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker during a 60-minute hearing here that the appellate courts should review his Jan. 5 decision allowing classified evidence into the case, a position the Obama administration took in court documents the day before. Without the classified evidence, Coppolino said, the government wins the case by default, and two American lawyers who claimed they were unlawfully spied upon can’t pursue their lawsuit.
