Defense lawyers insist on clients’ right to use NSA records

In the fallout over NSA leaker Edward Snowden’s revelations, one of the unintended consequences is a sudden interest on the part of many defense lawyers across the nation to seek agency records that could help their clients in ordinary criminal cases.

In addition, many more attorneys in drug-trafficking cases nationwide are said to be preparing motions after Reuters revealed on Aug. 5 that the NSA is a partner in a special Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) unit that supplies tips to local law-enforcement authorities. Those tips come from a massive phone-records database that the DEA’s Special Operations Division (SOD) taps, Reuters said.
