So now the US 6th Circuit Court has ruled that you don't have the right to challenge the government to stop spying on you even if you are sure they are spying on you, because since you don't have definitive proof they are doing it, you don't have standing to bring the case to court. Even in the one case where the defendent has 100% proof that his conversations were being illegally spied on, could be denied justice because the prosecution could simply decide to not bring forward evidence obtained in the illegal spying. Kafka would have found this America familiar.

Your turn now.
