(wgvu) - CINCINNATI (AP) - A federal appeals court has ordered the
dismissal of a lawsuit challenging President Bush's domestic spying
program, saying the plaintiffs had no standing to sue.
The two-to-one ruling by the 6th U-S Circuit Court of Appeals
panel was not on the legality of the surveillance program. But it
vacated a 2006 order by a lower court in Detroit.
That court had found the post-9-Eleven warrantless surveillance
aimed at uncovering terrorist activity to be unconstitutional.
The American Civil Liberties Union led the lawsuit on behalf of
other groups it says have been handicapped in doing their jobs by
the government monitoring.
The case will be sent back to the U-S District judge in Michigan
for dismissal.
