      Court OKs immunity for telecoms in wiretap case
      December 30, 2011| Jason Dearen, Associated Press
      A federal appeals court has ruled as constitutional a law giving
      telecommunications companies legal immunity for helping the government with its
      email and telephone eavesdropping program.
      Thursday’s unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit
      Court of Appeals affirmed a lower court decision regarding the 2008 law.
      The appeal concerned a case that consolidated 33 different lawsuits filed
      against various telecom companies, including AT&T, Sprint Nextel, Verizon
      Communications Inc. and BellSouth Corp. on behalf of these companies’
      customers.
