Lawyers Fear Monitoring in Cases on Terrorism.

Thomas Nelson, an Oregon lawyer, has lived in a state of perpetual jet 
lag for the last two years. Every few weeks, he boards a plane in 
Portland and flies to the Middle East to meet with a high-profile Saudi 
client who cannot enter the United States because he faces charges here 
of financing terrorism.

Mr. Nelson says he does not dare to phone this client or send him e-mail 
messages because of what many prominent criminal defense lawyers say is 
a well-founded fear that all of their contacts are being monitored by 
the United States government.
