Is a federal warrant issued under the Stored Communications Act, served in New York for emails stored at a data facility in Dublin, Ireland, valid under the 4th Amendment? Arguing that the federal warrant does not have extraterritorial reach, Microsoft is currently appealing a case to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals with potentially significant consequences for the cloud computing age. The case raises a host of questions about the nature of global data networks: does the Electronic Communications Privacy Act apply to data stored outside the US; is content stored in the cloud part of the service provider’s business records; and how do we address the increasingly complex nature of overlapping jurisdictions in the global digital age?
What is the balance that protects public safety, preserves our fundamental freedoms, and promotes trust in technology?
Join us for a call with James Garland of Covington and Burling and Nate Jones of Microsoft for a discussion on what The Washington Post refers to as “one of the most intriguing, consequential, and complex legal cases having to do with technology now in the courts.”
