FISA court asks government to declassify secret order in Yahoo case

John Ribeiro | July 16, 2013
The company had said publication of the court's order and parties' briefs would show it had resisted the order in 2008

Internet companies like Facebook, Yahoo, Apple and Microsoft have so far released aggregate figures for data requests from the government, but didn't say how many were related to national security. Yahoo said it could not break out requests under FISA, because those figures were classified.

The government had previously said it did not object to Yahoo's request for release of the court documents, and offered to conduct a classification review at the court's request.

"We encourage every company that has opposed a FISA order or directive to move to unseal their oppositions so the public will have a better understanding of how they've fought for their users," rights group Electronic Frontier Foundation said in a post.
