Cert. granted: United States v. Microsoft Corp., 17-2 (ScotusBlog)
Issue: Whether a United States provider of email services must comply with a probable-cause-based warrant issued under 18 U.S.C. § 2703 by making disclosure in the United States of electronic communications within that provider’s control, even if the provider has decided to store that material abroad.
This was inevitable, and it will be reversed. An American customer’s email can’t be hidden from a search warrant by claiming it’s in a server overseas.
