In re Warrant to Search a Certain Email Account Controlled and Maintained by Microsoft Corporation, No. 13 Mag. 2814, 2014 WL 1661004 (S.D.N.Y. Apr. 25, 2014)

Key Insight: Court denied Microsoft’s motion to quash search warrant that directed Microsoft to produce the contents of one of its customer’s emails stored on a server located in Dublin, Ireland, concluding that, even when applied to information that is stored in servers abroad, an SCA warrant does not violate the presumption against extraterritorial application of American law; in reaching its decision, court analyzed structure of the SCA, its legislative history, and practical consequences that would flow from such an interpretation

Nature of Case: Motion to quash warrant issued under Section 2703(a) of the Stored Communications Act

Electronic Data Involved: Email stored on Internet Service Provider’s server located in Dublin, Ireland
