(USNEWS) — Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., announced Friday he is moving ahead with plans to file a class-action lawsuit against the National Security Agency.
If Paul files his constitutional challenge in Washington, D.C., it's possible the lawsuit will be considered "in tandem" with an existing lawsuit filed by Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman.
Klayman filed the first class-action lawsuit against the NSA's bulk phone record collection after Edward Snowden's leaks in June. He also filed a class-action lawsuit challenging the NSA's PRISM Internet program.
