Brief for the Respondents in FBI v. Fazaga

In a brief filed on September 21, 2021 in the U.S. Supreme Court, the Muslim American plaintiffs in FBI v. Fazaga argue that the FBI must face claims that it secretly spied on their communities in Southern California based on their faith — violating the Constitution and federal law. In what will likely be a landmark case, the plaintiffs insist that the FBI cannot escape accountability for violating their religious freedom by invoking “state secrets.” The brief was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of Southern California, the Center for Immigration Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law, the Council for American Islamic Relations, and the law firm of Hadsell Stormer Renick & Dai.
