Google Inc (GOOG)., operator of the world’s largest search engine, is challenging a demand by the U.S. government for private user information in a national security probe, according to a court filing.

It “appears” to be the first time a major communications company is pushing back after getting a so-called National Security Letter, said the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an Internet privacy group. The challenge comes three weeks after a federal judge in San Francisco ruled that NSLs, which are issued without a warrant, are unconstitutional.

Long, long ago, an editorial in the Washington Monthly began with these words (stuck in my memory, obviously):

"In Florida, the doctors and the trial lawyers-- two groups who richly deserve each other--"

et cetera.
