SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – The 9th Circuit remanded a class action accusing AT&T of helping the government spy on U.S. citizens, citing Congress’ recent decision to grant immunity to telecommunication companies.
The ruling simply states: “In light of the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, Pub. L. No. 110-261, we remand this case to the district court. We retain jurisdiction over any further appeals.”
