For more on Narus, see the Declaration of our whistleblower, former AT&T employee Mark Klein
<http://www.eff.org/files/filenode/att/Mark%20Klein%20Unredacted%20Decl-Including%20Exhibits.PDF> and of our expert,
Scott Marcus <http://www.eff.org/files/filenode/att/Marcus%20Declaration%20Including%20Exhibits.pdf>.  (Originally, they
were sealed by Court order, but later we got all of the text and most of the exhibits unsealed.)

Small correction: we filed the lawsuit in 2006 (currently it's on appeal) but the documents are from 2003.
