Judge Orders Google to Disclose User Info to FBI

Judge Orders Google to Disclose User Info to FBI

A federal judge has ordered the Internet giant Google to hand over customer data sought by the FBI. In a ruling disclosed Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Illston said Google must comply with the so-called national security letters granting the government access to users’ private info without court warrants. Judge Illston’s latest ruling appears to contradict her decision earlier this year ordering the government to stop issuing the letters. A group that has challenged the letters in court, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said: “We are disappointed that the same judge who declared these letters unconstitutional is now requiring compliance with them.”
