Sneak-and-Peak Searches May Lead to Microsoft Lawsuit
Recently, a judge rules that the U.S. government can no longer intercept emails from company servers. Microsoft convinced the judge of this because it violates rights of free speech.
The argument was deemed plausible by the judge and Microsoft can now file suit over sneak-and-peek searches. These searches are now considered unlawful, but the argument isn’t over.
The Justice Department still defends the searches and says they are necessary to help fight against terrorists and criminals. Part of the issues is the secrecy orders keep Microsoft from telling the customer about the requests for a long amount of time. About 2,600 secrecy orders were served to Microsoft alone.
