"Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has decided to take a stab at stopping the illegal activity of the NSA by filing a class action lawsuit aimed at President Barack Obama and members of the intelligence community. The suit is at least the third filed at the Federal level since the Snowden revelations were made public. The previous two suits are almost guaranteed to end up in the Supreme Court, as federal judges disagree on the constitutional legalities of the NSA program."
Paul's suit is the first class action lawsuit against the NSA. If you want to join the suit yourself, be prepared to leave some contact information with his Political Action Committee, and then get hit up for a donation. Interestingly enough, there was some controversy about the text of the lawsuit, but not in a legal sense. Paul, a known plagiarist in speeches, was falsely accused of plagiarizing this lawsuit by the Washington Post.
