FBI Surveillance Program Challenged in Federal Court

A Federal court in San Francisco has heard arguments in a lawsuit over FBI surveillance letters - secret demands for information about phone and Internet customers that by-pass normal court procedures. The warrantless surveillance demands include a gag order barring telecommunications companies from revealing they’ve even received a letter. Plaintiffs in the case say the letters violate the US Constitution. Christopher Martinez reports from San Francisco.
