FBI Demands Library Records in Investigation

The ACLU announced on Thursday that the FBI is using its power under the Patriot Act to demand library records in Conneticut as part of a terrorism investigation. The library and ACLU plan to challenge the request, but the details of the lawsuit are not allowed to be released. This is the first confimed instance that the FBI has used its power to view library records since the adoption of the Patriot Act.
