Government Says Verizon Wireless Isn’t Verizon Wireless

Sep 23, 2015 | Privacy and Data Security Law

In response to Anna Smith’s request for judicial notice that Verizon Wireless participates in the NSA’s dragnet collection of call records, the government says that a reference to Verizon Wireless in a document filed with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court doesn’t actually mean THE VERIZON WIRELESS.

Of course, the government doesn’t deny it either. In fact, the government doesn’t even admit the document was filed with the FISC.
