Federal E-Discovery: CLOUD Act Governs Warrants for Data Stored Outside U.S.

June 5, 2018 Download PDF

Litigation partners Christopher Boehning and Daniel Toal’s latest Federal E-Discovery column appeared in the June 5 issue of the New York Law Journal. The article, “CLOUD Act Governs Warrants for Data Stored Outside U.S.,” discusses the Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act (CLOUD Act) and its role in ending Microsoft’s battle with the U.S. government regarding the extraterritorial reach of search warrants. The authors note that while the CLOUD Act clarifies the permissible reach of government subpoenas, it also threatens to create conflicts with the data privacy laws of other countries. E-discovery counsel Ross Gotler, e-discovery attorney Lidia Kekis and litigation associate Rebecca Orel assisted in the preparation of this article.
