Nov 09, 2015, 14:40 ET from Larry Klayman

WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Larry Klayman, founder, chairman and general counsel of Freedom Watch and also a former U.S. Justice Department prosecutor, announced today that the Honorable Richard J. Leon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has granted his motion for preliminary injunction for J.J. Little and his law firm, J.J. Little & Associates, PC., but at the same time set precedent for all Americans whose phones have been illegally and unconstitutionally surveilled. Klayman et. al v. Obama, Civil Action No. 13-851 (RJL) Memorandum Opinion (Dkt.#149) of November 9, 2015.

"This is one of the most significant cases in the history of litigation against the government," Klayman added. Judge Leon issued an historic 43-page opinion in which he stated, "This Court simply cannot, and will not, allow the Government to trump the Constitution merely because it suits the exigencies of the moment." He went further, recognizing what the judiciary has long realized: "moved by whatever monetary evil has aroused their fears, official . . . may be tempted to conduct searches that sacrifice the liberty of each citizen to assuage the perceived evil. But the Fourth Amendment rests on the principle that a true balance between the individual and society depends on the recognition of 'the right to be left alone' – the most comprehensive of rights and the most valued by civilized men."

Larry Klayman stated: "Never before in American history have people been subjected to such egregious violations of their constitutional rights. Thank God that there are judges like Leon who will stand up for the American people. Without this, revolution is almost assured if more judges do not start to do their job, like Leon, and protect the citizenry from government tyranny."
