Justice Department Sues to Block Missouri Access to Phone Records

JULY 26, 2006 - Posted at 8:02 a.m. CDT

 

WASHINGTON (AP) - The federal government is trying to block

Missouri officials from getting information about how telephone

companies cooperate with the National Security Agency.

A lawsuit filed in U-S district court in St. Louis says any

information the Missouri Public Service Commission wants to obtain

could cause ``exceptionally grave harm to national security.''

PSC members Robert Clayton and Steve Gaw issued subpoenas last

month to find out whether AT&T and other telephone companies gave

Missouri customer information and calling records to the N-S-A in

violation of privacy rules.

The Missouri subpoenas came after a U-S-A Today story reported

that A-T-and-T and other companies handed over phone records of

millions of Americans to the N-S-A after the September eleventh

attacks.
