“Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither. … Those who give up their liberty for more security neither deserve liberty nor security.” Benjamin Franklin.

France’s Association of the Court Press, that is reporters who cover trials and judicial investigations, are taking a new French law on domestic spying to the European Court of Human Rights saying the law violates their right to keep their sources secret.

The Paris Bar Association has joined the journalists in the lawsuit claiming it violates their right to attorney-client privilege, aka secrecy.
