+ - Privacy Lawsuits Over NSA Spying Force Retention Of Metadata->

Submitted by jfruh
jfruh (300774) writes "Under the U.S.'s previously secret program of gathering phone call metadata, that information was only retained for a period of five years. Now the government has petitioned the court system to retain it longer — not because it wants to, it says, but because it needs to preserve it as evidence for the various privacy lawsuits filed against the government. Federal lawyers have suggested several ways the informaton can be preserved without being available to the NSA."
