Surveillance law: US group can't challenge it, Supreme Court rules

A 2008 surveillance law allows the US government to detect and track the messages of would-be foreign terrorists. Critics say it is overly broad, but on Tuesday the Supreme Court blocked a challenge to it.

By Warren Richey, Staff writer / February 26, 2013

The Supreme Court building in Washington Sept. 2012, is shown covered with a protective scrim, as work continues on the facade. The high court on Tuesday ruled that a group of lawyers, journalists, and human rights researchers lack the necessary legal standing to challenge the constitutionality of a 2008 surveillance law which allows the US government to detect and track the messages of would-be foreign terrorists.
