MIAMI (AP) — The lawyer for a man on trial in a violent South Florida bank robbery case is seeking cell phone records possibly produced by a recently revealed National Security Agency surveillance program.

Attorney Marshall Dore Louis says in court papers that the Justice Department is required to turn over the phone records if they exist. Louis represents defendant Terrance Brown in the Broward County bank robbery case, which involved the killing of an armored car messenger.

Prosecutors say they are missing a month of Brown's phone records because his phone service provider no longer has them. But Louis contends the NSA most likely did collect data on Brown's calls and the defense is entitled to access.

U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenbaum told prosecutors to respond by the end of Wednesday.
