Privacy International sue over US access to finance data

According to the NYT, Privacy International has "filed complaints in 32 countries alleging that the banking consortium, known as Swift, violated European and Asian privacy laws by giving the United States access to its data."

Privacy International's webpage on SWIFT doesn't yet say anything about complaints. The NYT article also says "a Chicago lawyer, Steven E. Schwarz, filed a federal class-action lawsuit against Swift on Friday alleging that it had violated United States financial privacy statutes."

Thanks to Ian the link to the NYT article.
