Terror suspect represented by ACLU files court challenge of NSA surveillance

A terror suspect says it would be unconstitutional to use evidence against him obtained under the National Security Agency's warrantless surveillance program.

In a motion filed in federal court in Denver on Wednesday, Jamshid Muhtorov also requests that prosecutors disclose more about how the law on surveillance was used in his case.

Such a challenge had been expected after the Justice Department in October said it intended to use information gleaned from one of the NSA's warrantless surveillance programs against Muhtorov.

The Supreme Court has so far turned aside challenges to the law on the grounds that people who bring such lawsuits have no evidence they are being targeted.

Muhtorov was accused in 2012 of providing material support to an Uzbek terrorist organization active in Afghanistan.
