Microsoft Refuse to Give Emails Despite Court Order

/ 2 years ago


Microsoft executives have obviously been listening to too much N.W.A (NSFW – some bad language) recently. Although ordered by the federal court, they are refusing to hand over overseas-held email data to the feds.

Microsoft have stated that they will continue to hold on to this information as it waits for the case to wind through the appeals process, until this happens it’s unlikely to see them budge.

On Friday they released a statement:

“Microsoft will not be turning over the email and plans to appeal, everyone agrees this case can and will proceed to the appeals court. This is simply about finding the appropriate procedure for that to happen.” Windows IT Pro

Thus, the judge has ordered Microsoft and it’s prosecutors to advise her on the plan going ahead before next Friday, the 5th of September.

Stay tuned for further information.
