A New York state resident has settled with the US government and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) over a suit involving the law enforcement agency impersonating her on Facebook without her permission. Sondra Arquiett has accepted a $134,000 settlement from the US government, with the agency not admitting to having done anything outside a "legitimate law enforcement purpose."
The Drug Enforcement Agency and other government agencies have reportedly paid AT&T for access to a database of phone records extending back to 1987, according to a New York Times report. Referred to as the "Hemisphere Project," the program is said to store data regarding phone calls routed through AT&T switches, rather than focusing solely on records for AT&T customers.
