US District Court Judge William H. Pauley is at the center of the debate over whether or not Americans can request that the National Security Agency (NSA) halt their surveillance programs.
Lawyers for the government stated to Pauley that “ordinary Americans cannot legally challenge it.”
Stuart Delery, attorney for the Department of Justice (DoJ) explained that based on Smith v. Maryland (SvM), “ordinary Americans have no standing to challenge the collection of their call records. Americans have no reasonable expectation of privacy for those records, and that only phone companies can challenge their collection.”
