Can the goverment get your phone records? What remedies do you have?

Most of the information in the press on whether we do indeed have a right to privacy in our phone calling has been pretty nebulous. We know that some lawsuits have been filed, but the papers just report it, there is little in-depth analysis. For example, under what conditions can the government get hold of your calling records, and if they have done so improperly, what is your recourse?

Librarian Marylaine Block at NeatNew has dug up this Congressional Research Report which should help answer questions and also be a resource for anyone writing on the subject: Government Access to Phone Calling Activity and Related Records: Legal Authorities
