Microsoft cites new EU personal data rules in support of email dispute

John Ribeiro | April 20, 2016
Microsoft has refused to provide to the U.S. government emails stored on servers in Ireland

"Article 48's enactment confirms that, absent a clear statement from Congress, the Stored Communications Act should not be read to extend to data stored abroad," Rosenkranz wrote in a letter to the clerk of the court. "The presumption against extraterritoriality serves to guard against precisely the sort of international tension and intrusion on foreign sovereignty that the Government's reading of the Act would engender."

The proceedings in this high-profile lawsuit playing out in the appeals court have been rather slow in the last few months, with a decision by the court eagerly awaited because of its wide implications.
