Do you use Google?

Mike Scarcella in The Legal Times writes about The Justice
Department defending the government's refusal to discuss, or
acknowledge the existence of, "any cooperative research and development
agreement between Google and the National Security Agency."
The Washington based advocacy group Electronic Privacy
Information Center sued in federal district court here to obtain
documents about any such agreement between the Internet search giant and
the security agency.
The NSA responded to the suit with a
so-called “Glomar” response in which the agency said it could neither
confirm nor deny whether any responsive records exist. U.S. District
Judge Richard Leon in Washington sided with the government last July.
