George Christian: Gagged by a National Security Letter
As the executive director of Library Connection, Inc., John Doe (aka George Christian) works to make information accessible and champions the open discussion of issues and ideas, believing those to be constitutionally protected freedoms. His beliefs are being tested. Recently he received a national security letter (NSL) seeking sensitive information about a library patron. He's challenging the constitutionality of the NSL, which includes a gag order preventing him from telling anyone about the letter or his legal battle.
Facing the Government. Realizing that the surveillance and targeting they had experienced was an infringement on their rights under the Constitution, Fred Korematsu, Vincent Hallinan, Abdeen Jabara, John Fife and George Christian challenged the United States Government. In doing so they incurred the government's wrath and power to intimidate.
