Bush administration appeals loss in NSA/ATT case to 9th Circuit

On Monday the Bush administration appealed its loss in the AT&T/NSA 
wiretapping case to the 9th Circuit. U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker 
had ruled on July 20 that EFF's case alleging illegal cooperation with 
the NSA could proceed.

I've placed some of the briefs filed today online here:

Also on a personal note, CNET News.com and the California First 
Amendment Coalition won permission from Walker today to file an amicus 
brief. For background on that point:
