ACLU asks court to release a secret order forcing Facebook to wiretap Messenger

"Jennifer Granick, the ACLU’s surveillance and cybersecurity counsel, said the public “deserves to know why the government thought it could dismantle measures that protect their right to privacy online.”

“The outcome of this legal dispute between Facebook and the Justice Department has the potential to affect the private communications of millions of Americans who use communication services such as Messenger, WhatsApp,  Skype,  and Microsoft Outlook,” she said."
