+ - Federal Prosecutors, in a Policy Shift, Cite Warrantless Wiretaps as Evidence->

Submitted by schwit1
schwit1 (797399) writes "The Justice Department for the first time has notified a criminal defendant that evidence being used against him came from a warrantless wiretap, a move that is expected to set up a Supreme Court test of whether such eavesdropping is constitutional.

The government’s notice allows the defendant's lawyer to ask a court to suppress the evidence by arguing that it derived from unconstitutional surveillance, setting in motion judicial review of the eavesdropping."
