On July 14, 2016, the Second Circuit released its decision in Microsoft Corp. v. United States, No. 14‐2985, slip op. (2d Cir. July 14, 2016). The Second Circuit rejected the Government’s efforts to require Microsoft to turn over emails held overseas in its data center in Dublin, Ireland pursuant to a judicially-authorized search warrant. This decision may have significant implications for where corporations store their data in the future and on the US Government’s ability to use certain investigative techniques to obtain overseas data, such as email search warrants.
