Justice Department Sued for Records on FBI Training of Best Buy Geek Squad Spies

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Trump administration's Justice Department, demanding access to records about any FBI training and payment to Geek Squad workers to search customer computers without a court warrant.
