Justice Dep't Drops Request for Visitor Logs on Trump Protest Site

The U.S. Department of Justice is rescinding its request for IP logs that would have revealed visitors to a website used to plan a protest during Donald Trump’s inauguration. DreamHost, the web hosting provider that was hit with the request, has been fighting back against what it characterized as an over-broad warrant that would have forced the company to hand over “all information available to us about this website, its owner, and, more importantly, its visitors.”
