Microsoft’s privacy victory: Feds can’t get emails stored in Ireland
NEW YORK -- American companies don't have to hand over customer data to U.S. police if it's stored on computers in another country, a federal appeals court ruled on Thursday. The ruling gave Microsoft a major victory in its privacy battle with the Department of Justice. But because of the significant implications about privacy and the limitations put on American law enforcement, it's a case that could make its way to the Supreme Court.
