Judge Rejects Google's Challenge to Warrant Seeking Data Stored Abroad

Google came up on the losing end of a previously-undisclosed third showdown with the federal government over demands for data stored overseas, a federal court in Washington has revealed. The disclosure of yet another court fight over the issue comes as the U.S. Supreme Court is preparing to decide as soon as next month whether to weigh in on the question of whether U.S. law permits authorities to use U.S. courts to obtain electronic records kept outside of the country.
