No resolution yet in telephone probe

Still no resolution of the state of Vermont’s probe into whether telephone companies Verizon and AT&T broke state laws by giving the federal government information as part of the White House’s so-called warrantless wiretapping program.

The Vermont Public Service Board had been scheduled to be in court July 11th for a status conference on the case but it’s now been rescheduled to September 18th.

The state wants to know if Verizon and AT&T violated state laws by providing information under the wiretapping program.

The phone companies deny participating in the once-secret National Security Agency program, under which President Bush’s administration bypassed obtaining warrants through courts.
