The Electronic Privacy Information Center said Thursday it will petition the U.S. Supreme Court to abolish the law that lets the National Security Agency collect data on Americans’ telephone calls.

The Domestic Surveillance Project, an arm of the EPIC, will file the petition on Monday, Raw Story reported.

Domestic Surveillance Project Director Amie Stepanovich said, “EPIC truly believes that this Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court exceeded its authority, is not acting in accordance with the law and needs to be overturned — and cannot be allowed to continue conducting this surveillance,” Raw Story reported.

The American Civil Liberties Union has challenged the NSA’s data-collection powers, too.
