The ACLU of Massachusetts Thursday filed suit in district court against the FBI and U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz in an effort to learn more about the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The group was integral to the investigation of the Boston bombing and could have been involved in the death of Ibragim Todashev in Florida. Todashev was an acquaintance with alleged bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
